WIPEOUTRUN Austin Announced


Get ready for astonishing spills and magnificent thrills, Austin. WIPEOUTRUN is coming for YOU! Crash, smash and splash your way through a 5k course with larger-than-life obstacles inspired by the hit TV show Wipeout! The Ridiculous Obstacle Challenge 5k has partnered with Wipeout, America’s favorite TV game show. Registration is now open in select markets across North America at wipeoutrun.com!


Produced by Endemol Shine North America, Wipeout is a highly popular show that features 24 contestants attempting the world’s biggest and most painfully funny television obstacle course.

Developed in 2011 by VAVi Sport & Social in San Diego, CA, ROC Race took the world by storm and quickly became the fastest growing obstacle series in the nation, hosting over 150,000 “ROC Stars” in a single year. ROC Race and Wipeout have now teamed up to create the most epic 5k ever produced, where participants will experience iconic obstacles inspired by favorites from the hit TV show.

“ROC was born out of the belief that people not only love watching popular game shows on TV, but they want to participate too! Combining ROC Race and Wipeout has always felt like the perfect fit, said Latane Meade, President of VAVi Sport and Social. “WIPEOUTRUN will continue to keep many of the same fun and challenging obstacles that have made ROC wildly successful, but we will be introducing some key upgrades to give our fans a truly world-class obstacle running experience.”

The newly formed WIPEOUTRUN series has emerged in 2015 to take on 20 cities throughout the U.S and Canada. Take on this crashtastic 5K coming to Travis County Expo Center in Austin on September 26th. This is an untimed event open to anyone 18 & up of any athletic ability!
