Let the games begin…

Ever watched a TV game show and thought ‘I’d love to try that’?  Or are you just bored with other running events and obstacle races?  Either way, you’re in the right place now so congrats on getting this far.

Your next step will take you into a world of awesome obstacles and challenges that are all inspired by those game shows, from a punching traverse wall to a fresh take on the big balls, to a battle with giant pigeons and Admiral Nelson himself.

Did we mention we’ve got the Travelator?

So forget the tedium of a regular marathon, the gratuitous pain of other obstacle races, the ice and fire, the heavy lifting and the electricity, and come join us on our unique challenge of skill, endurance, mud, and a whole lot of nostalgia.

Ready? You will go on my first whistle…


What our Roughians are saying…


British Heart Foundation

We’re delighted to have partnered with the British Heart Foundation to help support the amazing work they do to win the fight against cardiovascular disease.

Each of the founders of Rough Runner, Jonathan, Thorfinn and Brian have personal reasons why the charity is so close to their hearts, so we’d love to be able to make a real difference with the help of our amazing Roughians.

The vision of the British Heart Foundation is a world in which people do not die prematurely or suffer from cardiovascular disease.

“Today in the UK, around 480 people will go to hospital with a heart attack. About seven in ten will survive to return home. In 1961, when the BHF began, that would have been unthinkable. In those days the odds of survival, let alone recovery, from heart attack were poor.”
