What is ROC Race?

Started in 2011, ROC Race (otherwise known as the Ridiculous Obstacle Challenge) has helped drive the obstacle race phenomenon throughout the United States.

In 2016, ROC Race comes to Australia - with events scheduled around the country.

So what is ROC Race?

It’s a game show inspired obstacle course covering approximately 5km distance.

The events are open to participants over the age of thirteen and the obstacles are designed for maximum fun and safety.
