An Epic Obstacle Course Is Coming To London This September

Every watched Total Wipeout, Ninja Warriors or Gladiators… and fancied giving it a go yourself?

Well, this summer you can, as the TV game show-inspired obstacle event Rough Runner heads to Finsbury Park on September 8–9! They promise no ice baths, no electricity, and no barbed wire – just big, epic challenges that offer the opportunity for glorious victory or hilarious mishaps. One of the best things to do in London this year!

The epic event combines distance running – with a choice of a 5km or 10km course –with up to twenty obstacles along the way, including a giant ball pool, ‘hang rough’ rings, Big Balls, and a 40-metre water slide. In true 90s TV fashion, the challenge ultimately finishes on the fearsome Travelator from Gladiators.

It’s your chance to see if you really would be a contender.

The are discounts for teams, who are also able to set off as a group, regardless of whether team members have opted for the 5km or 10km challenge. Over 15,000 Londoners have taken on the Rough Runner obstacle course over the last three years – check out the scenes from last year’s Clapham event below – but 2018’s edition promises to be bigger, better and slidier than ever.
