Ridiculous Obstacle Challenge 5K

Part 5K, part game show obstacle course (think MXC), the ROC race is an untimed event that anyone can participate in. Obstacles include water slides, wrecking balls, a tarzan swing and a moon bounce, among others. The race will be followed by an after party featuring live music, food, and a beer garden.

I've set up a team for us called AZYPSG. This put us all at the same start time. In addition, if we have the largest team signed up, then we'll all receive a 25% rebate on our signup fee. The start time is at 1PM. I'll update the event time as soon as it becomes available.

To see more information and to sign up, go to http://rocrace.com/phoenix/. The sooner you sign up, the better, as the registration price increases every few weeks. Finally, make sure to enter AZYPSG as the team name when you sign up to ensure that you run with the group.

    Thanks for setting this up, but I do want to mention I didn't appreciate the group leaving me before the race. I met at the designated spot, needed to get registered and drop my bag off (took only 10 minutes). I come back and the group is nowhere to be found. We had 20 minutes left before start time. For me, it was really no big deal that I ran the race solo, but I was looking forward to running it with the group. For the future, please be considerate to others. Thanks!

      Dang man thats a bummer, def come to more events, its a great group and we have a lot of fun

    • Alex

      Hey Raymond, sorry about that. I hadn't realized that you'd just gone to check your bag, and there were a few other people that were signed up with the group, came by and said hello, but ran with their friends. I think I assumed that you were one of them. My apologies, wouldn't have taken off if I'd known you were coming back.

    What does everyone think of dressing up Hawaiian-style? Coconut bras, leis, grass skirts (if you can run in one...)

    When I enter our team name it says 23 participants here it shows 36? After AZYPG it says Shnyader correct?

    October 29, 2013

    • Alex

      Well, that is my last name, so that's the team. Some from here may sign up late, and some not at all, but at least we've got the 23 for sure.

      Just a heads up, I didn't forget about this. They just got back to me, and said that they haven't set the times yet, but will early next week. Sorry, I know that isn't too helpful.

      October 25, 2013

    • Keli M.
