Rough Runner UK's only game-show inspired obstacle course is coming13th July 2019Rough Runner is a new breed of event. We’ve all done the 10k’s and half marathons, and some will have even done an obstacle event before. But not like this. Rough Runner will punish you of course, but gratuitous pain you won’t find here.

So if you’ve ever wanted to try them out for yourself (we did!), here’s your chance.
