EARLY BIRD TICKETS ON SALE NOW

 

Rough Runner is coming. So who are we?

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!

2018 will see Rough Runner arrive in the North East for the very first time! We will be coming to Lambton Estate, between Newcastle, Sunderland, Durham and Middlesborough, and bringing with us our host of epic, game show-inspired obstacles.

With a 5km, 10km and 15km route available across the most ridiculously beautiful place, featuring loads of forest paths, plenty of riverside running and some stunning meadows, you’ll have a host of natural obstacles along with up to 20 of our immense challenges.

We’ve had the most enormous number of requests to bring our event to the area, so will expect to see at least 4000 of you join us for what will be the best event you’re likely to do in 2018!

 Overview of the event

Overview

Rough Runner comes to the North East for the first time ever in July 2018 due to overwhelming demand! We have the most phenomenal venue booked, so you’ll be treated to a beautiful run while our obstacles complete the Rough Runner experience!

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

Lambton Estate

Prices

There is free access to the event for all spectators (unless they’re 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!

Really Early Birds!
