KONQER Apocalypse rescheduled for May 25

(Press Release) — Saipan’s third annual KONQER Obstacle Course Challenge has been moved from April 27 to May 25 starting at 9 a.m., according to KONQER president Kelli Wedd and MVA Managing Director Chris Concepcion.

“With so many community events taking place in April and May, and with some logistical issues we unexpectedly encountered recently, we are very happy to be able to move KONQER Saipan to May 25,” said Concepcion.

“This gives the organizers more time to prepare and teams and individuals more time to register. This will definitely be a great event with it falling on Memorial Day weekend, too. We are very excited for the third annual KONQER Saipan to take place next month.”

Registration is available for as low as $25 per persons 18 and older (event only) and free for age 17 and under at Non-business team registration is also available on the KONQER website, and business teams can be coordinated directly by emailing

“Now that we are on our tenth event overall, we’ve learned that while delays are never ideal, it’s always best to hold KONQER when it’s in the best interest for the community,” said Wedd. “We hope everyone understands the decision to push back the date for K10, and we’d like to extend our sincere appreciation to the local agencies and partners who have shown us such kindness and cooperation.”

Revised course information will be released soon, so event organizers encourage everyone to stay tuned to the KONQER website and Facebook page for the latest updates.
