What is an obstacle challenge?Obstacle Challenge? You may think this may be something you might find at a Kindergarten playground. In reality, an obstacle challenge is a long distance running event where your only challenge is not only distance, and ruthless obstacles such as walls, mud covered tunnels, and barbed wire obstructions, but the battle against your wit. READ MORE …


Is Viper Challenge a race?

Viper Challenge IS NOT a race. It is a personal challenge where you will aspire to complete each obstacle set out successfully and make it to the finish line with a sense of achievement and satisfaction! If it were a race we would be timing you but you will notice that you will not see a record of time anywhere along the course.

Do I have to register for Viper Challenge in a team?

No you do not, although we do recommend it is best to do Viper Challenge in a minimum team of 3, you may also want to register as a single participant. Either way, you will find that team work throughout the duration of the obstacle course is what will get you through.

How much is the registration fee?

We practice a Pricing Tier with each Tier having a certain quota of Tickets. Each event has a different Pricing Tier but the sooner you buy them the cheaper the price will be!  So get your Tickets NOW!

What is included in the registration fee?

The registration fee allows you to participate in Viper Challenge as well as supplying you with a Viper Challenge Finisher T-shirt, Finisher Medal and Certificate when you had completed the course.

Is there an age limit or minimum age to participate?

To participate in Viper challenge you will need to be at least a minimum age of 16 years. If you are below 18 years of age you will need to have your parent or guardian’s consent form signed to participate.

I have never ran before, will I be able to finish the challenge?

Whether you can run 2km or 20km straight, this is not the determining factor as to whether you will complete the Viper Challenge. You will most of all require teamwork, a good fitness level (especially endurance and strength) and mental fortitude. Without the need to succeed and without the determination as well as teamwork, you will not complete the course successfully.

Can I choose my Viper Challenge start time?

Viper Challenge is based on a “Wave” format which means only +/- 500 participants will be released into the Viper arena every 30mins. Participants can expect to complete all obstacles between 3-4 hours. We will endeavour to do our best to match you and your team to your ideal start time indicated during the registration. Final start times will be emailed around 3 weeks before the event.

What kind of obstacles are in the Viper Challenge?

The obstacles in the Viper Challenge have been carefully designed and built by a team of Australian and Malaysian qualified specialists. You will see obstacles made from steel, wood and using natures terrain. The rest is left for your imagination and as a surprise on the day.

Do I have to complete every obstacle in the event?

For the normal categories, you can walk around an obstacle that you feel you can not complete but we STRONGLY encourage you to attempt each obstacle involved in the challenge. After all, putting yourself to the test is what this challenge is about!

How much training should I be doing leading up to Viper challenge?

We recommend an increased training schedule starting from at least 3 months leading up to Viper Challenge.
