LONDON SOUTH – 5th & 6th OCT 2019

Morden Park



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, gym rings, big balls and yes, The Travelator.

We’ll have a 5km route with 10 obstacles and a 10km route with 15 obstacles 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.

A New London venue!

There’s no getting around it – London is a beast of a city. Sprawling, diverse, and busy, one event a year in the capital just isn’t enough. So we’ve found an awesome new spot in Morden Park, where you’ll get a beautiful run through perfect parkland, with amazing views of the city skyline.

It’s the closest thing you’ll get to a countryside run without leaving the underground network, so you get the best of both worlds. Join us for the latest addition to the Rough Runner events calendar and you’ll have something pretty spectacular to talk about on the tube ride home…

A few minutes from Morden underground station, as well as Morden South and St Helier train stations. So no excuse if you don’t drive…

100,000 Roughians to date have had the pleasure. To see why, take a look at some reviews below or read all of them HERE.

Bring the kids to Roughian Rascals!

Roughian Rascals is also back in 2019, but bigger and better, with wet obstacles for the kids! This is 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’s usually only one wave for the kids, being the last wave in the afternoon – meaning you can enjoy the catering and Travelator face plants before the kids head off; or the adults can run first in the earlier waves and be back in time to run with your kids (most do this!). Keep your eye for updates on this though as it could change depending on numbers of kids running.

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.
