A LITTLE MORE ABOUT THE ROUTE

About the route : The course changes every year to accommodate urban development and new exciting features. This years course meanders along a 5,5km route in and around the Stadium Precinct, through stadiums, pools and other awesome features, 90% of the route is completely closed off to the public. The route is only as challenging as you make it by pushing yourself.

CHALLENGES ON ROUTE : –

Do not be scared or intimidated, you are tougher than you realize. Our challenges are not built to destroy you, but rather to challenge you in a way no other race does. To this point, we prefer to refer to this event as an adventure course. The challenges are rather unconventional, here is a list of some of the challenges on this years course : –

SINK OR SWIM – A 30M LONG FLOATING WAKE BRIDGE

THE PLUNGE – A CHOICE BETWEEN A 7M OR 5M HIGH DIVING BOARD

THE POLECAT – IT’S KIND OF LIKE PLANKING, BUT YOU END UP INVERTED

MONKEY BARS | LEGS DAY | CAR PULL | SPIDER WEB

THE GRIND – A LITTLE SOMETHING FOR THOSE FOREARMS

DERAILED – A LITTLE SOMETHING FOR THOSE TRICEPS

LOW BARS – BRAND NEW TO STADIUM DASH, THIS LOW HANGING MONKEY BAR NEEDS YOU TO KEEP YOUR ENTIRE BODY OFF THE GROUND

& MUCH MORE…
