Support Us : Rough Runner

Rough Runner is a new breed of sports event for the whole family.

It merges distance running (there’s a 5km, 10km and 15km run) and obstacles that you’ll have to take on along the way. But not just the regular, military-style obstacles you’ll see on every other event out there, that do nothing but freeze, burn, lacerate and electrocute you. Instead, the obstacles are inspired by all those game shows we love – Takeshi’s Castle, Wipeout, Gladiator, Ninja Warrior and more. So if you’ve ever thought that the Travelator looked like a challenge off Gladiators, a sweeper obstacle would be a great laugh, or you just fancy a go on the big balls, then Rough Runner is for you.
