We’re counting down for the challenge along with thousands of eager “ROC Star” runners preparing to run throughout Brisbane and laugh their way through the world’s fastest growing 5K obstacle course, the Ridiculous Obstacle Challenge 5K, on Saturday, May 13 at the Brisbane Showgrounds.

Over 500,000 people have raced the ROC across the globe so it’s South East Queensland’s time to ROC it! New tour feature a brand new epic obstacle, an enhanced runner experience (complete with costume contests and giveaways) and free spectator tickets for all plus more!

“We are absolutely thrilled with the way that everyone supported our 2016 tour by snapping up the entries so quickly,” said Luke Hannan, director of ROC Race Australia and general manager of The Color Run Australia. “We knew this would be a popular event here in Australia; however, the reaction has been overwhelming. We cannot wait to bring an even better, more ridiculous experience in 2017!”

In collaboration with the producers of The Color Run Australia, ROC Race is now one of the fastest growing obstacle series in the industry and has hosted over 500,000 ROC Stars worldwide. Check out all the hype and excitement about the original, the biggest, the best game show inspired 5k!
