South West/Bristol – 13/14th October 2018

 
 

 

The Rough Runner Challenge…

Rough Runner is an obstacle course challenge, combining distance running with a variety of obstacles along the way, each inspired by game shows such as Total Wipeout, Takeshi’s Castle, Gladiators, and Fun House. Expect sweeper arms, giant pigeon battles, big balls and yes, The Travelator!

We’re returning to the South West after a great event in 2017, with over 2,500 Roughians taking on the Rough Runner Challenge. The grounds of Charlton Park will be hosting our full-scale, epic obstacle event, with a beautiful run throughout, crossing parkland, streams and through tree-lined avenues. And of course, some seriously awesome obstacles along the way!

We’ll have a 5km route with 10 obstacles, a 10km route with 15, and a full 20 obstacles on our 15km route if you’re up for the toughest challenge. Best of all, everyone who joins us for the game show-inspired journey will cross the Travelator at the finish line. So you can consider that particular childhood dream fulfilled!

The venue is readily accessible from many cities, such as Oxford, London, Birmingham, Bath and Bristol.

Got kids? There’s a course for them too!

ABOUT.

Bristol, we’re back!

2018 will see Rough Runner return to the South West after our first outing in 2017, when 2500 Roughians crossed our Travelator finish line in style.

Our mission is to make obstacle events accessible to all, from seasoned runners to first timers and everyone in between, and give every single person an experience they’ll actually enjoy! So join us for our game show-inspired obstacle revolution, and help us make our South West event a regular feature on our event calendar.

You’ll have the option of a 5km, 10km or 15km run with up to 20 obstacles along the way, with the difficulty level increasing as you up the distance, so pick the degree of challenge that suits you best and get involved.

Even better, grab some mates, colleagues and family members and take it on together.

If you want to see the rest of the obstacles you and the rest of your team will be up against, have a gander: https://roughrunner.com/obstacles/

* approximate numbers, subject to change at any time

Check out on Google maps where the event is.

  • Bristol centre – 40 mins
  • Bath – 40 mins
  • Newport - 50 mins
  • Cardiff - 1 hour
  • Cheltenham/Gloucs - 45 mins

WHAT'S INCLUDED.

  • There is free access to the event for all spectators (except for parking costs if driving separately).
  • We want to encourage our Roughians to bring their friends and families to see them take on The Travelator at the finish line, and don't feel the need to charge for a ticket just to enjoy the spectacle!
  • Free bag drop service.
  • You'll also get a free medal.
  • We won't be throwing in a cheap cotton T-shirt - we dropped our ticket prices instead. (We do, however, have a much higher quality, sexy, technical T-shirt available for a mere £17.50, which you can get at the checkout when you buy your ticket. For those that miss the boat you can also get them on the day of the event, but expect to pay a little extra!)

PARKING

We have a fully managed car park on site, and we have a traffic management system in operation with AA road signs in place showing where to go.

Car parking is just £5 per car, cash on the gate that covers the cost of operating all this.

DETAILS

  • 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 9am through to approx 2pm, 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 out in the countryside can be temperamental. Car parking is £5 cash on the day.

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.

Best thing - check out on Google maps where the event is.

Their maps are great, and provide awesome directions and even tell you how long it'll take you to get there from where you are! So you don't need to be late! But still give yourself time in case there's an accident or something you or Google is not in control of!

  • Bristol centre – 40 mins
  • Bath - 40 mins
  • Cardiff – 1 hour
  • Cheltenham/Gloucester - 45 mins
  • Exeter - 1 hour 40 mins
  • London - 1 hour 40 mins

 

Bring the kids to Roughian Rascals!

2018 sees the launch of a new event, Roughian Rascals, a 1 mile course designed specifically for adventure-seeking kids from 7 to 12 years old.

The course will give kids the chance to get wet, possibly a little muddy (weather dependent!), and experience some unique, cool and fun obstacles – in a safe and managed environment.

There will be multiple time slots and we can give you flexibility on your wave to make sure everyone can run!

If you’re interested in entering kids into Roughian Rascals, either just add their tickets when you’re booking yours, or have a look at our info page here.
