Manchester – 21/22nd October 2017

 

The Rough Runner Challenge….. is mainly lots of FUN but also:

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 a punching wall, giant pigeon battles, sweeper arms, big balls and yes, The Travelator!

The grand finale of 2017 will take place just outside Manchester, where our season will finish with an anticipated 5000 Roughians triumphing on the Travelator!

With a 5km, 10km and 15km route available across grass plains, through woodland and even crossing a river, you’ll have a host of natural obstacles along with up to 20 of our epic, game-show inspired challenges.

And situated just outside of central Manchester, not far from Liverpool, there’s no excuse for not making the trip to this awesome, easily-accessible venue. See you there!

 

Book early and grab a bargain! Next price rise in:

 

Just like a plane or a train ticket, prices go up the closer we get to the event dates. You’ll save up to 40% by booking early so don’t miss out on a deal!

 Overview of the event

Overview

Rough Runner returns to Manchester once more in 2017 having hosted 4000 people in both 2015 and 2016, and will be bringing a fresh host of obstacles.

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

We’ll have a 5km route with around 10 obstacles, a 10km route with 15, and all 20 obstacles on our 15km route if you’re up for the toughest challenge. We never do laps at Rough Runner, but 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!

Do it now. Regret it never.

Did we mention we have The Travelator?

Location

Prices

There is free access to the event for all spectators. 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 it!

You’ll also get a free medal, but 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 £15, which you can get at the checkout when you buy your ticket. For those that miss the boat you can get them on the day of the event, but expect to pay a little extra!
