Rough Runner is an obstacle course challenge, combining distance running with a variety of obstacles along the way, each inspired by game shows such as Total Wipeout, Takeshis Castle, Gladiators, and Fun House. Expect sweeper arms, gym rings, big balls and yes, The Travelator.

Well have a 5km route with 10 obstacles and a 10km route with 15 obstacles if youre up for the toughest challenge. Best of all, everyone who joins us for the game show-inspired journey will cross the Travelator at the finish line. So you can consider that particular childhood dream fulfilled.

Roughian Rascals is also back in 2019, but bigger and better, with wet obstacles for the kids! This is a 1 mile course designed specifically for adventure-seeking kids from 7 to 12 years old.

The course will give kids the chance to get wet, possibly a little muddy (weather dependent!), and experience some unique, cool and fun obstacles in a safe and managed environment.

Event Details

What’s Included

Entry Fees Include:

  • Free bag drop service.
  • You’ll also get a free medal.
  • We won’t be throwing in a cheap cotton T-shirt – we dropped our ticket prices instead. (We do, however, have a much higher quality, sexy, technical T-shirt available for a mere £17.50, which you can get at the checkout when you buy your ticket. For those that miss the boat you can also get them on the day of the event, but expect to pay a little extra!)
  • Free Roughian wristband.
  • Raceday Logistics

    Start times will be from around 9am through to approx 3pm, and we will advise you of your start time about 7 – 10 days prior to the event date.

    There’s a secure bag drop in the runners’ village, free of charge for participants. Though it is used at each participants’ own risk.

    We take no responsibility or liability for anyone’s belongings left in the bag drop.

    Also, although it’s in a marquee the ground can become muddy, so don’t bring your Gucci hangbags or fancy gear! They may well get muddy!

    Kit List

    Wear appropriate gear for the weather and conditions.

    1. Spikes WILL NOT BE ALLOWED. We have obstacles that spikes can cause damage to and we don’t want to take any risks. Your shoes will be checked before you race. Note that spikes also include football boots with “studs”. If you haven’t got shoes without spikes, be prepared to run barefoot!

    2. Suitable clothing. This is up to you, but we’d suggest a warm change of clothes for after the event and gloves to use during (for all those nets and ropes). You will get muddy, and so will your trainers, so don’t wear anything you are particularly precious about!

    Things you’ll need to bring:

    1. A print out of your ticket, a signed waiver, and photo ID. You can’t race without!

    2. Cash for food and drinks on site – card payment machines out in the countryside can be temperamental. Car parking is £5 cash on the day.

    Spectators

    There is free access to the event for all spectators, except for a £5 parking fee if driving separately. We want to encourage our Roughians to bring their friends and families to see them take on The Travelator at the finish line, and don’t feel the need to charge for it!

    Volunteers

    Our Marshals take on very important roles, guiding our runners through the obstacles and around the route, and of course providing encouragement and support all along the way!

    Volunteer shifts generally run between 7am – 4/5/6pm, with details to be confirmed 1-2 weeks before the race date.

    As a member of our Volunteer team, you will receive the following items as thanks helping us run this truly epic event!;

    – Free Rough Runner high quality technical t-shirt
    – Free lunch
    – Free tea & coffee
    – Free entry to a future race

    Or if you’re feeling generous, you can choose to give your ticket to someone else, and let them race the event whilst you’re volunteering. Don’t worry, you still get the T-shirt and other free stuff!
