PRICES RISE 30TH APRIL 23:59. DON’T MISS OUT.


 

Manchester – 16/17th June 2018

 
 

 

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 40m slide, giant pigeon battles, sweeper arms, big balls and yes, The Travelator!

Having had over 12,000 Roughians in 3 years take on our obstacles at the Manchester event each October, it’s time to give you a new venue and better weather to enjoy it in! So say hello to Arley Hall in June 2018.

With a 5km, 10km and 15km route available in a stunning new estate, with rolling meadows and forest paths throughout, you’ll have a host of natural obstacles along with up to 20 of our epic, game-show inspired challenges.

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

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

 Overview of the event

Overview

Rough Runner returns to Manchester once more in 2018 having hosted over 12,000 people in the past 3 years, and will be bringing a fresh host of obstacles to a new venue with (hopefully) better weather!

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.

If you still haven’t seen what you’ll be up against, have a peek here: http://roughrunner.com/obstacles/

Did we mention we have The Travelator?

Location

Arley Hall
Northwich
Cheshire
CW9 6NA

Prices

There is free access to the event for all spectators (aside of parking 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 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 £17.50, 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!

***TICKET PRICES RISE APRIL 30TH 23:59***

* Prices are per person, and our ticketing partners, Eventbrite do charge a basic admin and card processing fee on top of this per ticket.

Details
  • If you want to find out what’s included in the price, just click on the “prices” tab.
  • Start times will be from 9am through to approx 3pm, and we will advise you of your start time around 10 days prior to the event date.
  • Please arrive on site at least 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 grab a mate or two 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 – there will not be card machines. Car parking is paid in 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.


 

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.
