Obstacle Running Events Calendar

This is where the magic happens. This is the reason you’re here.

Our events are like no other on the market. We combine physical challenge, teamwork and fun across all of our events, with obstacles that you’ll have never seen before, except on TV.

Whether you’re a newbie or a seasoned veteran, there’s something for you here. Each event has a range of difficulty levels, with the 5km obstacles focused on fun while the 15km badasses get the toughest challenges and the 10km runners somewhere in between.

So whatever your fitness level, whatever you’re into, find the event that’s nearest to you and try it out.

Rough Runner is heading West for the very first time, just outside of Bristol. The grounds of Easter Compton will be hosting our full-scale, epic obstacle event, with a beautifully flat run throughout, all while overlooking the valley nearby. And of course, some seriously awesome obstacles along the way!

We’ll have a 5km route with around 10 obstacles, a 10km route with around 15, and all 20 obstacles on our 15km route if you’re 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!

The venue is readily accessible from many cities, such as Oxford, London, Birmingham and Bristol.

Yep, we’re heading back to Scotland!

Rough Runner’s first Scottish event took place in 2016, and it went down so well that it’s all happening again in August 2017.

Taking place through a deer park overlooking the Firth of Forth, you’ll get a vista beyond comparison, while dodging the deer and taking on a few gigantic obstacles in your way!

It’s the only event in Scotland that gives you the chance to take on the Travelator, so grab a ticket and get on that treadmill…

With a 5km, 10km and 15km route available across grass plains, through woodland and even crossing a river, you’ll have a host of natural obstacles along with up to 20 of our epic, game-show inspired challenges.

And situated just outside of central Manchester, not far from Liverpool, there’s no excuse for not making the trip to this awesome, easily-accessible venue. See you there!
