An event like no other…

Why Rough Runner?

Imagine if there was an event where the TV show Gladiators meets Total Wipeout, Ninja Warrior and Takeshi’s Castle! Well, that is Rough Runner in a nutshell. 

Choose between a 5km, 10km or 15km run and challenge yourself with 20 epic, unique obstacles all inspired by our favourite TV game shows – Total Wipeout, Ninja Warrior and Gladiators! (Remember the Travelator…)

Now with a kids course for 7-12 year olds, we have something for everyone. This is an event you’ll ENJOY, all the way along – not just the relief of the finish line…

Here are just some of the obstacles you can take on at Rough Runner: (see more here)

What our Roughians are saying…

Good fun day. Good balance between obstacles and running. Changing facilities could have been bigger though as you need to get out of your wet clothes as soon as possible on a cold day!

Despite the chilly weather the event was great fun and extremely well organised. Every ability was catered for and the commentary at the top of the travelator was quite amusing!

Was looking forward for this event for months. Had a great team of people with me and the staff and organisation of the event made it glide smoothly during the day. Can’t wait to take part again next year. Hopefully they might arrange so that i can get a team of my school children involved.

Rough Runner South

Wow, what a great event. Set under the South Downs on the Wiston Estate it was a brilliant challenge. We took on the 15km distance and the 19 obstacles faced were such fun. We will definitely do another RR. Thank you.

Adam
Ben

Great event. Loved it. Earlier start times preferable.

Had an absolute blast and already booked up for next year. Would have been nice to have an earlier start time is my only feedback.

Ben
Michael

Ruth

Rough Runner 2019 South

Cold day and cold wind which didn’t help when you get wet! But it was so much fun! The only complaint I would have is that the changing tent could have been slightly bigger. Don’t know what the men’s was like but the women’s was a bit too small.

Ruth
Thomas

Great fun

I’ll definitely be there next year

Stephen

Really Fun Run @ Rough Runner

Had a great time running, jumping, climbing and getting wet !!
Great setting and the event was really well organised with the staff being super friendly. Only downside – it took a while for some to register, but had a great day and haven’t stopped telling my mates at work.

Stephen
Abby

Highly recommend!

We had so much fun taking on the challenging obstacles between the 15km cross country run! The mechanical arms and big bouncy balls were the highlight… and watching everyone take on the travelator topped off the day! Met some lovely people & can’t wait to come back next year!!

Abby
Emma

Wet fun in the Park

Great fun, made me realize i need to up my game with my stamina and fitness!

Hannah

Amazing.

I never thought I could do an obstacle event. I just proved to myself that I can.

Danny

Best thing I’ve ever done.

It was such a positive vibe – everyone was in it together and the feeling of group support was amazing

Danny
Rob

Awesome bonding.

Laughing at strangers isn’t supposed to be OK, but when they laugh back at you it makes a weird, awesome sort of bond!

Rob
Mathew

Simply the best.

This was literally the best thing I’ve ever done. And I got to laugh at the rest of my team A LOT 🙂

Matthew
Jaz

Chuffed.

The obstacles are so much fun, but they’re not easy! Actually feel pretty chuffed with myself right now.

Nostalgic.

I’ve been watching Gladiators and Wipeout for AGES. So this was a bit of a dream come true!
