Rough Runner – Scotland
Penicuik, Scotland, United Kingdom

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 Our inaugural event in 2016 was a great success, soon superseded by our 2017 event, and then even more at our 2018 events in the stunning Penicuik House - that saw over double the numbers and amazing feedback, so we have to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.

5k Zombie Run
Moneymore, Northern Ireland, United Kingdom

Irelands original Zombie Run at The Jungle challenges participants to complete a daring 6K obstacle trail run while being chased by blood-thirsty, running Zombies.

The Zombie Run returns this year and will take place on Saturday 6th October and Sunday 7th October 2018

Past runners will see a big improvement in this years course. First, off it will be 6K, instead of 5K so more treacherous terrain will be covered in your mission to evade our insatiable zombies. On top of that, we have added in bigger and better obstacles, including our exhilarating Giant Water Slide. For those who havent been before, this will be a good year to start. We have few other spooky surprises to make it a little more daunting.

On Sunday we have the kids Zombie Run with a 2km and 5km zombie chasing course.

Each runner starts with THREE lives (represented by flags worn about the waist) but, in addition to the running, the overcoming of obstacles and the manoeuvering through mud, runners also face ZOMBIES who will give chase in an attempt to steal one of their three lives.

The runners objective is to make it to the finish line with as many lives as possible intact. The Zombies objective, however, is to steal your lives, so when you hear gunshot be prepared to run, for you only have three lives and the monstrous, prowling zombies are a determined bunch!

£40 - £50
