Rough Runner

Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd of October

Have you ever watched TV shows such a Total Wipeout, Gladiators or Ninja Warrior and thought, ‘I could do that’? By joining us at the UK’s only TV game show-inspired obstacle event you can do just that! Take on the travelator or help your team across the punch wall, with three distances and over 20 different obstacles there is plenty to have a go at, all while raising vital funds for the Christie.


Thank you to everyone who took part in Rough Runner 2017 for Team Christie! We hope you had a fantastic day taking on the obstacles and are deservedly proud of your achievements.
