Rough Runner Manchester (Saturday)

Having had over 12,000 Roughians in 3 years take on our obstacles at the Manchester event each October, it’s time to give you a new venue and better weather to enjoy it in! So say hello to Arley Hall in June 2018.

With a 5km, 10km and 15km route available in a stunning new estate, with rolling meadows and forest paths and lakes throughout, you’ll have a host of natural obstacles along with up to 20 of our epic, game-show inspired challenges.

And situated just west of Manchester, not far from Liverpool, there’s no excuse for not making the trip to this awesome, easily-accessible venue. See you there!

Our full range of epic obstacles will complete the picture, challenging thousands of Roughians to swing, crawl, climb, dodge and jump their way to the finish line. That’s where the Travelator will laugh at your exhausted attempts to get up the fast lane! It’s a huge event each year so get it in your diary to kick off the season in style!


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 a 40m slide, giant pigeon battles, sweeper arms, big balls and yes, The Travelator!


DETAILS


  • Please arrive on site at least 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 grab a mate or two 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 – there will not be card machines. Car parking is £5 cash on the day.

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.

Roughians!

Thanks so much for making our Manchester event last month such a success!

We've been running the event near Manchester for 4 years now, and with the new venue at Arley Hall and the new time of year, the feedback at the event was better than ever. So we're excited to announce that we've got dates booked in for 2019, and you've got access to exclusive launch tickets with a hefty discount!

So, if you're one of the many people who were asking if we're coming back, all you need to do is take a look through your inbox for another email you'll have received yesterday (26th July). It asks for your feedback, and in return we're offering you exclusive access to launch tickets, and up to 20% off the price.

If you're not fussed about that, and just want to see the info for next year, then have a look here:
https://roughrunner.com/manchester-2019/

We'd love to continue to make the event a regular feature in the area for years to come, so we're hoping to see loads of you back for 2019 along with anyone you know who missed the action in June.

Finally, if you didn't get to see your event video, you'll find it here: https://www.facebook.com/RoughRunners/videos/2013165038718358/

Thanks again, and see you next year!

Photos and videos of your epic day!

Roughian!

It's been over a week since you smashed the Travelator, so hope you've recovered by now!

Before the memory of it all fades, why not check out the photos and video of the event, if you haven't already?

Here's where it all is!

Travelator and course photos (paid) - http://roughrunner.com/photos

Podium/finisher photos (free) - https://www.facebook.com/pg/RoughRunners/photos/


To find your photos, make sure you look at the right day and the rough time that'd you'd appear in them (e.g. Manchester 2018, Sat 12-1pm). For the course photos you can also search by your race number, but that only works if you managed to keep it on!

Hope you had an awesome time, and are looking forward to coming back next year - Manchester 2019 dates to be announced soon!

Rough Runner official course photos are up!

All the photos from The Travelator (and some other places too) are now available to view, buy and download.

The photos are in timed galleries to help you easily find yourselves. Just click on the day you ran, then the obstacle and the time frame you'd have completed it. Or just  search using your race number, assuming you kept it on!

Remember, if you had several goes, there will be several sets of photos of you!

Head back to Rough Runner tomorrow, on us!

sent by Rough Runner on 16/06/2018 at 21:11
Hi Roughian,

Thanks so much for participating today!

We had a great time today, watching you triumph on the Travelator and wipe out along the rest of the course, but one thing we were gutted about was missing the end-of-day knock out contest with the sudden downpour - it's the 3rd time running we've had to cancel it in Manchester!

The forecast is loads better tomorrow, so we want to give you another chance to take on the ultimate Rough Runner challenge, and win £100, and we'll even let you run the course again beforehand too, on us.

So, here's what to do (if you want to run the course again):
1. Turn up between 9am and 11am
2. Bring your photo ID
3. Bring a print out of this waiver: https://bit.ly/2JRm2Ru)
4. Bring a copy of your ticket from today's event (i.e. Saturday)

You can run the distance of your choice, even if it's a longer one, and the Travelator contest will be waiting for you at the end of the day, at around 2.30-3pm (roughly when the last runner finishes).

If you don't fancy doing the run again, but just want to take part in the knock out challenge, then head down with your medal (as proof you ran today!) around 2pm just in case we start early.

Hope to see plenty of you there tomorrow!

We have 3 lads doing the Roughian Rascals course, how early before the waive time do we need to arrive? Also is there an FAQ page re. What to wear/ bring etc? Is the waive time likely to change?

Hi Joe, you need to exchange your entry for a transfer credit. You can then use your credit to sign up the new entrant :)
