About: Created by runners, inspired by game shows, made for everyone.

Each Rough Runner has a range of difficulty levels, with the 5km firmly focused on fun, the 10km upping the ante and the 15km taking it to the toughest level.

It includes physical challenge, teamwork and fun with obstacles from TV game shows like Gladiators, Total Wipeout and Ninja Warrior.

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 tackling some flying balls, then Rough Runner is for you. Whatever your fitness level, whatever you’re into, there’s an event rough enough and near enough for you.
