About Rough Runner

What’s in store for Rough Runner Scotland 2019?

First, we’re delighted to head back to the stunning Penicuik Estate, with its immense terrain providing a host of natural obstacles along the way.

Secondly, we’ve epic new obstacles & challenges planned for you. We’ll be keeping everyone’s favourite obstacles from over the years and introducing some new and novel ways of wiping you out!

Thirdly, due to lots of requests, we’re adding a TIMED ELITE WAVE! These will be the first waves of the day, where 4 people race against each other every few minutes – meaning no queues, a leader board AND prizes for the best 3 times!

We’ll have a 5km route with around 10 obstacles, a 10km route with around 15, and all 20 obstacles on our 15km route if you’re up for the toughest challenge. Best of all, 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!

And again we'll be doing our Roughian Rascals obstacle course for kids! 7-12-year-olds can now join in for the first time ever, with obstacles specially designed just for them! (We're even trying to work on a child-friendly version of the Travelator!)

Venue: Penicuik Estate, Penicuik EH26 9LA

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Rough Runner are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
