Rough Runner’s back in Oxford!

5,000 Roughians nailed the Travelator last year, so we’re back to give another packed-out crowd a fresh challenge! So whether you’re new to Rough Runner or have been before, this is your only chance to take on our epic obstacles in the heart of the stunning Oxfordshire countryside.

We’ll be bringing the legendary Travelator with us to your doorstep, and giving you the opportunity to bring your favourite TV game show memories into reality.

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

And excitingly, 2020 sees us expanding the event to give you an even bigger, better day out! We’re bringing loads of activities for kids to do; such as five-a-side football, zorb balls, archery, parkour, rock climbing, zip lines and more. All this delivered by an experienced crew who you can leave your kids with, whilst you enjoy a gin and tonic, beer or glass of bubbly along with great food from a large array of great caterers.

And why not stay on to enjoy some music from local bands? It’s not just an obstacle event – it’s a real day out for family and friends alike. 

If you want to see the rest of the obstacles you and the rest of your team will be up against, have a gander at the obstacles

Did we mention we have The Travelator?

Do it now. Regret it never.

So check out the section on Getting There below, and you’ll see where to go and what to do!

  • 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 around 9am through to approx 3pm, 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 outdoors can be temperamental.

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.

Getting there

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!
