+ get 20% off all ticket purchases as a previous runner!


As someone who has already experienced what it means to be a Roughian, we don’t need to tell you all about how much fun the events are – you know that already!


About our Charity Work

We were a little surprised when we discovered just how much our incredible Roughians had raised at the end of 2016. £250,000 was the figure back then, and it blew us away. For us, the events are a labour of love. A reaction to the punishing, military-style events so commonplace, and a desire to create something new, different, and genuinely great fun – for everyone to enjoy, not just the macho elite.

So to discover we’d also created a way for people to raise vital funds for incredible charities up and down the country was quite the heart-warming experience.

Fast forward to the present day, and our Roughians now raise in excess of £1 MILLION for amazing causes up and down the country.

And now we need your help to do even better this year.

All you need to do is grab a ticket for any of the upcoming events below, then go to our fundraising page to find out how you can get involved and do your bit for charity.



Did you know…

Firstly, during 2019 we are continuing our mission to raise as much funding for charities as we possibly can and we hope that you’ll get involved and contribute to a great cause that’s close to your heart too.

Secondly, we have a fantastic new range of obstacles and features at our line-up of 2019 events, meaning that even if you have done an event before, there’s lots of new stuff to keep you entertained and challenged whilst you spend at least one day this year helping the charity of your choice.

Plus as a valued previous runner – you’re also entitled to a special 20% discount on all tickets you purchase for 2019 events! (Just use the code BACKFOR2019 when you checkout).

So why not get involved now by signing up for your nearest event below, and make a real difference to someone else’s life whilst also having a ridiculous amount of fun – the Rough Runner way!


Remember this! We certainly did… and can’t wait to be back.
