Will you ROC out, or Wipeout at the Ridiculous Obstacle Challenge?
You’ve seen it before. Warriors running through a course of inflatable obstacles on television shows such as Wipeout. We know you’ve thought about it, considered yourself a worthy contender. Well, your time has come to prove yourself. If you’re 13 or 100, the Ridiculous Obstacle Challenge Race is yours to conquer. But you must hurry, last year’s Sydney event sold out in just 4 hours.
You will finally understand the intensity Miley Cyrus has experienced as you attempt to dodge and weave your way through the course’s Wrecking Balls. If you weren’t already running rampant with adrenaline, the 3m Leap of Faith is sure to keep the heart pumping. This epically ridiculous experience ends true to childhood dreams, with a 4-storey high, 38-meter-long slip ‘n’ slide known fondly (or alarmingly) as The Hippo!
After you’ve completed the course stick around, the Ridiculous Obstacle Challenge Run has more to offer. Unwind in the post-challenge chill-out zone, set up a spectator picnic or join in on the foam cannon or costume contest fun. 2DayFM will be bringing the tunes, setting the perfect vibes for a long day ahead.
On from 25th till the 26th of February and back for its second year, the Ridiculously Obstacle Challenge Race looks like it’s here to stay at Sydney Olympic Park. This larger-than-life, inflatable fun run course, is waiting for you to scale its walls, jump from its heights, and slither on down its slippery slopes. This outrageous event will have you reliving that early childhood joy in adult size! From Sydney, ROC will make its way to Melbourne on the 1st of April at the Flemington Race course before heading to Perth, Gold Coast and Adelaide.
Gather your friends, a school reunion perhaps and create a team to join in on the festivities. If you’re not quite prepared for the embarrassing stories to ensue from a total Wipe-out, come running solo. For $93, you will re-live your childhood memory to an extreme, and receive a shirt to prove it. Simply register online here and select a date and time slot with the first wave crashing in at 7.30am. With 12 obstacles to face over a 5km distance, your eyes will bulge at what you’ve signed up for.
