The event

Rough Runner is back in the city, returning to Finsbury Park, where we’ll be hosting our 5km and 10km obstacle routes within spitting distance of the Tube.

It’s no easy feat, but we manage to bring a full range of massive, awesome obstacles onto a public common and stage the biggest urban obstacle event in the country. If you’re a Londoner, you really don’t want to miss this…

A few minutes from Finsbury Park and Manor House stations – our most accessible location by far for public transport!

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.

With options of a 5km route with around 10 obstacles, a 10km route with 15, and all 20 obstacles on our 15km route, you can pick your challenge. We never do laps at Rough Runner, but everyone who joins us for the game show-inspired journey will cross the Travelator at the finish line. So you can consider that particular childhood dream fulfilled!
