Sydney Olympic Park


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 11 epic obstacles include (but are certainly not limited to!) the infamous Wrecking Balls, the menacing Sweeper, the Leap of Faith, the 4-storey tall Hippo Slide and our brand new 39m long mega-obstacle, Big Mama!

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!


After two sell-out years, we're back! This year we're coming at you with a brand-flipping new course, an epic foam after party, more on course music and Big Mama: our brand-new 39m long mega-obstacle! PLUS this year all participants receive a finishers medal and towel with their ticket! Tell your mates, as you don't want to miss your last ever opportunity to ROC!

When registering, you will need to select which wave you'd like to join. Within this wave, you will be allocated a particular start time - so you'll need to ensure you're available for any start time within your wave! Participants will be notified of their exact start time in the weeks prior to the event.

Wave 1 (Early Riser):
Wave 2 (Need Sleep):

There are only a limited amount of tickets for each wave, so we strongly suggest you and your mates register STAT! Don't forget that the first person to register will need to create a team. This is the only way to ensure you'll all be allocated the same start time!

ROC Race is for anyone ages 13 and over!

Unfortunately, at this time we do not allow children under the age of 13 to participate in our event.
However, children under 13 are allowed to come to the event and watch!
