The Stampede is one of Australia’s leading obstacle racing event series, and it’s charging through Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne in 2015!

Picture it now: you and a group of your best friends helping each other to crawl, run, climb and slide through all four elements to a victorious finish! It’s the ultimate girl’s day out!

What sets our obstacle events apart from the others? It’s all about fun! Our obstacles require participants to belly crawl through liquid mud, bounce across floating mats, balance across wooden beams and hurtle down our infamous Slip ‘n’ Slide! For the more adventurous we have ice pits, steep ramps, rope climbs and electrified cables (don’t worry, no obstacle is compulsory!).

We have 5km and 10km course options with the latter involving 30 obstacles for you to enjoy! You don’t have to be at peak physical fitness at all to enjoy our event; we have competitors absolutely blitz the course and run continuous laps and then others that dress up in full costume and giggle their way around the course!

Once you finish, there will be a cold beverage waiting for you and shower facilities to hose off all that mud, because you will be absolutely covered from head to toe! You can then relax and enjoy The Hub with entertainment, music and a variety of food and drink vendors available.

Kids also have the chance to prove their skills in our Junior Stampede, a specially designed, 2km obstacle course that caters to kids aged 5-13 years. Parents are encouraged to run along with their kids (you never know, they might even beat you!) and make it a fun day for the whole family.

Costumes are highly encouraged and half the fun is seeing what quirky characters show up and watching them smash through the course! Prizes will be offered on the day for the best dressed so don’t hold back with your creativity!

As Australia’s only not for profit obstacle racing event, all funds from The Stampede benefit the Kokoda Youth Foundation and support Australian teenagers through their youth programs. So you can have an awesome, fun-filled day knowing that it’s all going towards a fantastic cause!

So are you ready to run wild with us this year? Registrations are open now for Brisbane (5th September), Sydney (24thOctober) and Melbourne (28th November) and we look forward to seeing you there! Find out more here.
