Rough Runner first came to Scotland in 2016 and with numbers doubling in its second year it’s sure to be a popular event for 2018 so get in quick if you’re interested! The 2018 event is taking place at Hopetoun House in South Queensferry.

This is an obstacle course challenge combining distance running with a variety of obstacles along the way! If you like Total Wipeout or Ninja Warriors then this is for you!

There are three distances to choose from – 5K, 10K or 15K with discounts for team entries.

There is also a course for the kids – Roughian Rascals – which is a 1 mile course for those aged 7 to 15 years.

How to register: 

You can find out more about Rough Runner by visiting the event website by clicking here.  We would love it if you would run in support of Poppyscotland and we can even send you a poppy t-shirt to wear with pride on the day and help you pass those obstacles!

If you’re interested in taking part in Rough Runner then please contact your local regional fundraiser.

Once you have registered set up your personal fundraising page on either Just Giving or Virgin Money Giving.
