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.

We encourage all our Roughians to help raise as much money for this amazing cause as possible, while you get the chance to take on our array of epic obstacles! It’s just one more reason to get involved!
