You can use a custom pagelist template that redirects to the random 

   (:pagelist fmt=#redirect count=1 order=random list=normal:)

   (:redirect {=$FullName} quiet=1:)

See $EnableRedirectQuiet if you want to remove the link "Redirected from 

Alternatively, you can place a pagelist with random links in the 

   %sidehead% Random pages
   (:pagelist fmt=#title list=normal order=random count=3:)
