How it works

Taking part is simple

Get each full challenge brief with all the necessary instructions and requirements sent straight to your inbox at the start of each week. Depending on the challenge, you will be required to either evidence your attempt by video or by GPS fitness tracker. Then submit your results and evidence to us via our submission form. Simple!

Healthy Competition

Feature on the Series Leaderboard

While Rokman challenges are paths of personal discovery, the series leaderboard offers participants an extra layer of healthy competition and incentive to push their limits further. Log your results and see how you rank against all other participants around the world. The leaderboard is opt-in, so if you don't want to feature on the board you have the option to keep your results private.

However, due to the nature of this being an online challenge series, it’s not 100% fool proof.We have to take everyone’s submissions at face-value. If we can confidently identify people either cheating or doing the challenge incorrectly, we will notify the competitor privately via email.At the end of the day, the leaderboard is just a bit of competitive fun. These challenges are personal tests of resilience. If people decide to cheat, they’re only cheating themselves. If you concentrate on yourself and give your best honest performance then you can hold your head high at the end of the day.
