Where Gladiators meets Total Wipeout, Ninja Warrior and Takeshi's Castle! Choose between a 5km, 10km or 15km run and challenge yourself with 20 epic, unique obstacles all inspired by our favourite TV game shows -Total Wipeout, Ninja Warrior and Gladiators!. Go wild at a Rough Runner as part of Team Animal and help us continue the fight against animal cruelty.
5 km, 10 Obstacles
Reg Fee: £10
Fundraising pledge: £150
The easiest of all the courses, the 5km is particularly good fun, with 10 obstacles geared towards having a laugh whilst still providing a challenge. But there's no suffering here (we don't like getting electrocuted either!) - you're just going to get very wet. And if you're not built to run marathons, that's fine too. The average running distance between 2 obstacles is only about 500m, so your stamina reserves don't need to be endless!
10 km, 15 Obstacles
Reg Fee: £15
Fundraising pledge: £200
The 10km is our most popular course, with up to 15 unique obstacles (it's not two laps of the 5km course - you'll enjoy additional obstacles). The distance between each obstacle is around 500-1000m on average, so you'll need a reasonable level of fitness if you plan on running the whole way.
15 km, 20 Obstacles
Reg Fee: £20
Fundraising pledge: £250
Our toughest challenge.
20 epic obstacles designed to test your strength, agility, balance, and ninja skills. Our 15km course is no mean feat, but we're not about to make you carry sandbags, run up and down hills repeatedly or get electrocuted! The 15km still gives you all the obstacles that feature on the 5km and 10km courses, but you'll also get an extra 5 obstacles that are unique, and more physically challenging than the rest (we don't do laps at Rough Runner). Plus of course you'll be running nearly 10 miles!
