What’s Raw?

Each year, more than 50,000 people tackle Raw Challenge obstacle events. What makes Raw Challenge so popular? . The unique and constantly evolving tests of strength, STAMINA, and mental toughness give people an enormous sense of self belief and achievement.

Whether you participate as an individual or as part of a team you’ll enjoy the thrill of finding out what it really means to be alive.

If your journey sees you conquer one obstacle or conquer all 60 you’ll discover endorphins that you never thought existed! You don’t have to break any land speed records and you don’t have to run, no matter how you conquer it you’re going to have fun!

Located 90 minutes north of Sydney, Doyalson Raw Challenge is nationally recognised for boasting the most obstacles in an event of this kind. We’ve traded the relatively flat terrain across our permanent location to take advantage of increased and super-sized obstacles, with awesome viewing points for our spectators.

The Course

The Raw Challenge course consists of over 60 unique obstacles that are dynamic and constantly changing to meet the growing fitness levels of our Challengers and enhance the Raw Challenge experience every time.

There are numerous certainties when participating at the Raw Challenge course, having fun, getting muddy and being tested mentally and physically!

Our Youth Wave is an extraordinary 2.5km modified course and has 20 epic obstacles for participants to tackle!.

Outside of Major events, Raw Challenge is a permanent training facility offering private 3-4km courses that see Challengers work together to overcome 40 momentous obstacles!

First time attendee would highly recommend, it challenged me in many areas; heights, mud, climbing. So much fun. Will definitely be doing it again.

We had a really good experience. All obstacles were well designed for different level of capabilities and atmosphere was terrific. I particularly appreciated how everyone helped each other.

I haven’t done raw before and I think the best thing was the spirit of team work felt throughout the course! If I was struggling, complete strangers jumped in to help me, offering tips or a leg up or just encouragement. It really felt like we were all in it together. I loved it!

Great event, well set up and organised. Awesome amount and variety of obstacles that are challenging but achievable. Had a great day with my teammates, would definitely do it again. If you’re thinking about it but not sure I say just go for it.

I have completed eight Raw Challenges now and have watched it evolve into an amazing fun team activity for me and my BootCamper’s along with their friends and families. I have completed many obstacle courses over the last seven years and find Raw to be the most ‘fun’ along with being challenging to the right level. I love the added water plunge at the beginning and the slide was a boot!

Yesterday was my first Raw Challenge. At the time I wasn’t sure if I was having fun because my goal was to conquer my fear of getting dirty and I was focused on having a determined go and finishing. With help from my team and even strangers... I did it! My son and daughter-in-law watched and that gave me amazing encouragement. So chuffed that at nearly 62 I CONQUERED RAW CHALLENGE. My children say I'M A CHAMPION AND LEGEND. Loved the atmosphere of the whole day which was incredibly well organised with a huge variety of challenges. What’s next on the bucket list?
