HYROX Australia: The Fitness Race for Everybody

Get ready, Australia! HYROX, referred to as the World Series of Fitness Racing, is hitting our shores with two events on the cards so far. The first race will be held in Sydney on August 12th, followed by Melbourne on August 26th.

What is HYROX?

HYROX launched in Germany back in 2017 and is now being enjoyed in over 11 locations around the world. Some HYROX events have seen more than 4000 participants and over 10,000 spectators!

The HYROX events combine eight 1km runs and eight workouts consisting of;

  • SkiErg
  • Sled Push
  • Sled Pull
  • Burpee Broad Jumps
  • Rowing
  • Farmers Carry
  • Sandbag Lunges, and
  • Wall Balls

The design of the workouts is kept the same worldwide and can be enjoyed as a solo participant in either the Standard / Open division or Individual Pro as well as options for doubles and relay teams if you perform better with a crew by your side!

The team behind HYROX takes pride in it being an accessible fitness race for everybody and the event has had competitors from age 16 to 77. While the average finisher will knock over the event in around 90 minutes, some will take 3 hours to complete the race, but over 98% of participants make it to the finish.
