Created by Runners, Inspired by Game Shows, Made for Everyone

Rough Runner focuses on the fun and enjoyment elements of running via its obstacles. 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! And this year SpecialEffect are Charity Partners with Rough Runner.

Please note, as yet we cannot guarantee an exact wave time for SpecialEffect's runners, but you will be racing around the middle of the day on 11 July. Our charity places are offered at a considerable discount to the regular price, at just £40 each (whichever distance you choose). The minimum age for participation in these races is 16 years.

There are 3 x Distance Options:


Our entry level run with 10 fantastic obstacles to challenge you. This run is great for first time obstacle course runners or people who are still working up to the 10km. This run is designed to bolster their confidence and instil a love of obstacle courses so they come back for the longer distance events.


Our most popular run with 5 additional obstacles to the 5km. The 10km is designed to be more challenging in terms of running ability and physical strength. Our focus is still on making sure our Roughians have fun but a good level of fitness is preferable to make it round the full course


The most challenging of all the distances, with 20 obstacles. Training is required for this course!
