Bristol – 24/25th June 2017

ONLINE TICKETS CLOSED – You can still register on the day so turn up before 12pm if you want to run!

 

The Rough Runner Challenge….. is mainly lots of FUN but also:

Rough Runner is an obstacle course challenge, combining distance running with a variety of obstacles along the way, each inspired by game shows such as Total Wipeout, Takeshi’s Castle, Gladiators, and Fun House. Expect sweeper arms, giant pigeon battles, big balls and yes, The Travelator!

We’re 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 10 obstacles, a 10km route with 15, and a full 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.

 Overview of the event

Overview

Rough Runner is heading West for the very first time, to the heart 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 10* obstacles, a 10km route with 15*, and a full 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!

If you want to see the rest of the obstacles you and your team will be up against, have a gander: http://roughrunner.com/obstacles/

* approximate numbers; these are subject to change at any time.

Location

Easter Compton Farm,
Main Road,
Easter Compton,
Bristol,
BS35 5RE

Prices

There is free access to the event for all spectators. We want to encourage our Roughians to bring their friends and families to see them take on The Travelator at the finish line, and don’t feel the need to charge for it!

You’ll also get a free medal, but we won’t be throwing in a cheap cotton T-shirt – we dropped our ticket prices instead.

We do, however, have a much higher quality, sexy, technical T-shirt available for a mere £15, which you can get at the checkout when you buy your ticket. For those that miss the boat you can also get them on the day of the event, but expect to pay a little extra!

Details
  • If you want to find out what’s included in the price, just click on the “prices” tab.
  • Start times will be from 9am through to approx 3pm, and we will advise you of your start time during the fortnight prior to the event date.
  • Please arrive on site around 1 hour prior to your start time, to get yourself registered, set up and ready to run!
  • For most, driving will be the best means of getting there, so grab a mate or two and road trip it!

Things you’ll need to bring:

1. A print out of your ticket, a signed waiver and photo ID. You can’t race without!

2. Cash for food and drinks on site – there will not be card machines. Car parking is £5 cash on the day.

3. Suitable clothing. This is up to you, but we’d suggest a warm change of clothes for after the event and gloves to use during (for all those nets and ropes). You will get muddy, and so will your trainers, so don’t wear anything you are particularly precious about!

Otherwise just check back here in the run up to the event, stay in touch via our Facebook page, or feel free to drop us a line here.
