ASIA’S biggest obstacle challenge, the Viper Challenge, has partnered Tripda, a new and innovative carpooling platform, as a transport solution partner for the event that will take place next weekend.
The obstacle challenge will be over a 20km route with 20 man-made obstacles put in place to physically and mentally test the 20,000 participants who will try to complete it successfully.
Viper Challenge, which started in 2013, has gained popularity among young adults, setting the trend towards a healthier lifestyle.
Event director Selva Kumar said a huge turnout was expected and they will face many challenges when it comes to managing various aspects of the event, especially parking.
“We want to ensure a pleasant experience for all our participants from the minute they drive in, register and until the end of the event.
“The parking issue is something we need to resolve, therefore partnering Tripda is ideal.
“It’s also great that, at the same time, we can promote travel that is environmentally sustainable among our participants,” Selva said.
With a huge number of people expected to gather at the Sepang International Circuit for the most unique outdoor experience, Viper Challenge and Tripda are urging participants and event volunteers to carpool in order to reduce traffic congestion.
An online landing page to match participants as well as volunteers heading to the event has been created to promote carpooling.
To further promote carpooling, the organisers and Tripda are offering some perks, including a RM50 Petronas cash card and priority parking space located near the Viper Challenge entrance for those who offer rides.
To enjoy the perks, participants must register at www.viper.partners-tripda.com.my before the event.
“Carpooling is an advantage in every aspect. Apart from reducing traffic, overcoming parking problems and reducing carbon emission, it also brings people together in friendship and unity.
“It will definitely benefit participants of the Viper Challenge in fostering friendship even before the start of the challenge,” said Tripda managing director Victor Ang.
Currently, Tripda is free for all to use. It is safe, fuss-free and an economical way to get from one destination to another. Tripda can be accessed via www.tripda.com.my or downloaded as a mobile app via the Apple App Store or Google Play.
Registration for the Viper Challenge is still open.
