For the first time ever, Rough Runner is going Urban! The awesome backdrop of Salford Quays, the media hub of the North West of England, will provide an entirely new obstacle experience.

Taking place around the waters of the Media City, this is a shorter 2.5km, obstacle-packed course, so you don’t need to be a fitness nut to take on the challenge.  And you don’t even need to leave Manchester’s city centre!

10-12 obstacles will feature on a 2.5km lap around the Quays, while a second lap would take you up to 5km and give you a another chance to make it through each challenge! Both routes will finish in style with an attempt at the Legendary Travelator, with its four different speeds – Fast, Medium, Slow, and even Reverse for anyone who needs a lift to the top!

We have a limited number of Charity Places available for this year’s Salford event on the 6th July 2019.
