ARE YOU READY MANCHESTER?

Rough Runner’s back in Manchester!

1000s of Roughians nailed the Travelator last year, so we’re back to give another packed-out crowd the chance. 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 city.

We know of no other event which brings a range of obstacles so massive, so ambitious, and so much fun – directly to the heart of a city!

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 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.

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.

The Experience

Good fun day. Good balance between obstacles and running. Changing facilities could have been bigger though as you need to get out of your wet clothes as soon as possible on a cold day!

Despite the chilly weather the event was great fun and extremely well organised. Every ability was catered for and the commentary at the top of the travelator was quite amusing!

Was looking forward for this event for months. Had a great team of people with me and the staff and organisation of the event made it glide smoothly during the day. Can’t wait to take part again next year. Hopefully they might arrange so that i can get a team of my school children involved.

Rough Runner South

Wow, what a great event. Set under the South Downs on the Wiston Estate it was a brilliant challenge. We took on the 15km distance and the 19 obstacles faced were such fun. We will definitely do another RR. Thank you.

Ben

Great event. Loved it. Earlier start times preferable.

Had an absolute blast and already booked up for next year. Would have been nice to have an earlier start time is my only feedback.

Rough Runner 2019 South

Cold day and cold wind which didn’t help when you get wet! But it was so much fun! The only complaint I would have is that the changing tent could have been slightly bigger. Don’t know what the men’s was like but the women’s was a bit too small.

Ruth
Thomas

Great fun

I’ll definitely be there next year

Really Fun Run @ Rough Runner

Had a great time running, jumping, climbing and getting wet !!
Great setting and the event was really well organised with the staff being super friendly. Only downside – it took a while for some to register, but had a great day and haven’t stopped telling my mates at work.

Stephen
Abby

Highly recommend!

We had so much fun taking on the challenging obstacles between the 15km cross country run! The mechanical arms and big bouncy balls were the highlight… and watching everyone take on the travelator topped off the day! Met some lovely people & can’t wait to come back next year!!

Emma

Wet fun in the Park

Great fun, made me realize i need to up my game with my stamina and fitness!

Hannah

Amazing.

I never thought I could do an obstacle event. I just proved to myself that I can.

Danny

Best thing I’ve ever done.

It was such a positive vibe – everyone was in it together and the feeling of group support was amazing

Danny
Rob

Awesome bonding.

Laughing at strangers isn’t supposed to be OK, but when they laugh back at you it makes a weird, awesome sort of bond!

Rob
Mathew

Simply the best.

This was literally the best thing I’ve ever done. And I got to laugh at the rest of my team A LOT 🙂

Jaz

Chuffed.

The obstacles are so much fun, but they’re not easy! Actually feel pretty chuffed with myself right now.

Nostalgic.

I’ve been watching Gladiators and Wipeout for AGES. So this was a bit of a dream come true!

Emily
Nathan

Recommend to anyone.

I did this with my son and a friend and his son in aid of Cancer Research. I cannot say how much fun we had. We enjoyed ourselves thorougly – i would recommend everyone give it a go.

Parking

We don’t provide any parking at Salford Quays as it’s so easy to get to via the Tram and Public Transport.

Although there are public car parks and spaces available – just be warned you do need to pay.

 

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 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!
