With over 500,000 certified ROC Stars from around the world and entering its 7th year, the Ridiculous Obstacle Challenge 5k (ROC Race) is the original game show-inspired obstacle fun run featuring larger-than-life obstacles set along a 5k walk/run course. These 12 epic obstacles include (but are certainly not limited to!) the infamous Wrecking Balls, the menacing Sweeper, the brand new Leap of Faith, and an epic finish line slide down The Hippo – a towering 4 story tall waterslide!

ROC Race is an untimed event open to everyone, from couch potatoes to track stars, ages 13 and up. Get your teams and costumes ready, and prepare for an experience you will never forget!
Please note: Prices are valid until the allotment of tickets at that price sell out or the indicated date, whichever comes first. Entry fees are non-refundable and prices above include the mandatory insurance fee and the *booking fee that is inclusive of GST for the ticket price as shown. Best way to ensure the lowest available price is to get registered as soon as possible! Prices are subject to change at any time without notice.


This year's tour is better than ever, featuring brand new elements including the Leap of Faith (a 3 meter free fall obstacle!), costume contests, merch giveaways on course, and FREE spectator tickets for all - so your mates and family can come watch you ROC! You don't want to miss this!
