Rough Runner is coming to Birmingham!


We’ll be bringing the legendary Travelator with us to your doorstep, and giving you the opportunity to turn your favourite TV game show memories into reality.

Inspired by TV game shows like Total Wipeout, Gladiators, Takeshi’s Castle and Ninja Warrior, this is the only event that lets you take on a load of epic obstacles that you’ve only ever seen on screen and always wanted to try.

Packington Estate* will be hosting our first ever event in the area, providing the most stunning scenery across varied terrain all along the way.

Set over a 5km, 10km or 15km distance – the choice is yours – there’s a level of challenge to suit your degree of fitness. So whether you’re a couch potato who should be getting out more or a full on gym junkie, we’ve got you covered.

And excitingly, 2020 sees us expanding the event to give you an even bigger, better day out! We’re bringing loads of activities for kids to do, delivered by an experienced crew who you can leave your kids with whilst you enjoy your run (or just get some peace and quiet and have a drink!). 

If you want to see the rest of the obstacles you and the rest of your team will be up against, have a gander at the obstacles

Did we mention we have The Travelator?

Do it now. Regret it never.

We have a fully managed car park on site, and we have a traffic management system in operation.

Car parking is just £8 per car, cash on the gate.

So check out the section on Getting There below, and you’ll see where to go and what to do!

  • If you want to find out what’s included in the price, just click on the “What’s Included” tab.
  • Start times will be from around 9am through to approx 3pm, and we will advise you of your start time about 7 – 10 days 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 get some buddies together and road trip it!

Things you’ll need to bring:

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

2. Cash for food and drinks on site – card payment machines outdoors can be temperamental.

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, or feel free to drop us a line here.
