Rough Runner – Scotland

Are you ready in Scotland?

Thats right, Rough Runner is coming back for the 4th year running! Our inaugural event in 2016 was a great success, soon superseded by our 2017 event, and then even more at our 2018 events in the stunning Penicuik House - that saw over double the numbers and amazing feedback, so we have to come back in 2019!

So were bringing back our awesome, TV game show-inspired obstacles north of the border, although have just moved over to a different, although also stunning new venue, Penicuik Estate, thats right in the middle of a bunch of major Scottish cities. Its an amazing place and it makes for an incredible course.

For those whove been before, come back, take on a long distance and see what new obstacles and fun things we have in store for you!

So go create a team, grab some friends and colleagues and help us to make an absolutely amazing event happen!

Roughian Rascals is also back, 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.

What you need to know about Obstacle Races

Obstacle Course Racing (OCR) involves a competitor travelling on foot overcoming various physical challenges or obstacles. The most common form of these are a combination of mud and trail runs, and the big players in the space are Tough Mudder, Spartan Race & Born Survivor.

Different obstacle event types

The obstacles used are often similar to those used in military training and tend to include climbing over walls, carrying heavy objects, traversing bodies of water, crawling under barbed wire and jumping through fire. They’re epic when done with friends, and these events are big on the social side so get a team together, get the war paint on and get ready for big celebrations and post-race beers.
