Rough Runner - Preview

April 14, 2018 - October 14, 2018 | Various venues across UK

The UK’s only game show-inspired obstacle course, Rough Runner puts the fun back into outdoor fitness events! With a perfect blend of physical challenge, fun and a heap of nostalgia, it’s the perfect obstacle course!

Unlike other obstacle course races that are widespread in the UK, Rough Runner promises no ice baths, no electricity, and no barbed wire! Instead participants get the chance to take on challenges inspired by top TV game shows like “Gladiators”, “Total Wipeout” and “Ninja Warrior” as part of a 5km, 10km or 15km run.

Runners can expect to compete against obstacles that won’t be found at any other event, such as Big Balls, mechanised Sweeper arms, a 40m water slide, and the legendary Travelator.

Suitable for all fitness levels, Rough Runner offers a unique challenge of skill and endurance, with a fair amount of mud and a mixture of terrains along the way. There’s a 5km route with 10 obstacles centred around fun, for those just getting into running; a 10km run with 15 obstacles of increasing difficulty; and finally a 15km course with 20 obstacles that are suitably tough!

There will be Rough Runner events all across the UK throughout 2018 including Hampshire, Oxfordshire, Bristol, London, Manchester, Newcastle and Scotland, with each event likely to attract up to 6000 participants.
