The ARWS Oceania Adventure Race Circuit is a collection of the best mid-distance adventure races in the Oceania region.  Event organisers set a unique course to test athletes over 125-250km courses of non-stop day and night racing in the disciplines of trekking, mountain biking, kayaking, and navigation. Participating teams earn points towards their AR Regional Ranking and the winner of each round gains entry to the ARWS Oceania Championship. The winner of the Regional Championship gains an entry to the global Adventure Racing World Championship and part of a cash prize pool of AUD$10,000 ($5,000 for first place, $3,500 for second and $1,500 for third).

The ARWS Qualifiers in each region are included in both the Regional Circuit and World Qualifier Circuit.
