Swing, crawl, climb, dodge and jump your way to the finish line – Rough Runner is back for the 3rd year running! 

The Rough Runner Challenge….. is mainly lots of FUN but also: Rough Runner is an obstacle course challenge, combining distance running with a variety of obstacles along the way, each inspired by game shows such as Total Wipeout, Takeshi’s Castle, Gladiators, and Fun House. Expect sweeper arms, giant pigeon battles, big balls and yes, The Travelator!

Rough Runner, Scotland will take place on Saturday 18th August 2018 and you can run for us, choosing between the 5k, 10k or 15k routes. Regardless of your choice, this race will test your limits and there’s an awesome medal waiting for you at the finishing line!

All the money you raise by participating in Rough Runner will help ProjectScotland continue supporting young people across Scotland. See our new film and find out what your fundraising will support.
