Scotland – 18th/19th August 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!

Rough Runner’s first Scottish event took place in 2016, and in August 2017 we had over the twice the turnout with lots of returning runners which was great to see! So we’re back in 2018, with a new venue and new obstacles, creating an event that’ll be bigger and better than ever!

We’re in an awesome location for 2018, set in the hills of the Penicuik Estate with absolutely stunning scenery and a mix of terrain throughout. So even if you’ve run our Scotland event before, this will be a whole new experience.

It’s the only event in Scotland that gives you the chance to take on the Travelator, so grab a ticket and get on that treadmill…

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

ABOUT.

Are you ready Scotland?

That’s right, Rough Runner is coming back for a 3rd year running! Our inaugural event in 2016 was a great success, soon superceded by our 2017 that saw over double the numbers and amazing feedback, so we have to come back!

So we’re bringing back our awesome, TV game show-inspired obstacles north of the border, although have just moved over to a different, although also stunning new venue, Penicuik Estate, that’s right in the middle of a bunch of major Scottish cities. It’s an amazing place and it makes for an incredible course.

For those who’ve been before, come back, take on a longer distance and see what new obstacles and fun things we have in store for you!

So go create a team, grab some friends and colleagues and help us to make an absolutely amazing event happen!

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/

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!

  • Edinburgh – 30 mins
  • Glasgow – 50 mins
  • Perth - 1 hour
  • Dundee - 1hr 20 mins
  • Dumfries - 1hr 20 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.
