Established in early 2003 by Alina McMaster and Tom Landon-Smith, AROC (Adventure Racing Outdoor Challenges) Sport is an outdoor event management company which specialises in organising Adventure Races.
Former members of the Australian Cross-Country Ski Team and Australian Rogaining Multisport Champions, Alina and Tom are two of Australia’s leading adventure racers. Their team has accomplished top 3 finishes in major international adventure races such as the EcoChallenge, Fiji, the Subaru Primal Quest, USA and the Southern Traverse, NZ.
Using their extensive experience, they created a wide array of adventure races designed to satisfy every possible level, from the first-timer to the experienced all-rounder!
After 7 seasons and over 60 events successfully organised, AROC Sport is widely recognised in the outdoors community as extremely competent event organisers and great course setters. AROC’s commitment to challenging navigation gained the respect of Orienteering Australia, the national governing body for all state associations, and they are now AROC’s official partner. We also have ties to the ACT and NSW Rogaining Associations, as well as MTB-Orienteering NSW, and AURA, the Australian Ultra-Running Association.
We are finally working with environmental non-for-profit organisation The Wilderness Society to raise funds and awareness through the organisation of the WildEndurance trail challenge.
AROC Sport also offers mountain biking enduros, a paddling event, trail runs, as well as customised corporate adventure-style programs, seminars and motivational speeches.
Today AROC Sport is more than ever dedicated to growing the sport of Adventure Racing in Australia by providing fun, safe, professionally-run events.
