Rough Runner - London South (Saturday)
There’s no getting around it, London is a beast of a city. Sprawling, diverse, and busy, and one event a year in the Capital just isn’t enough. So we’ve found an awesome new spot in Morden Park, where you’ll get a beautiful run through perfect parkland, with amazing views of the city skyline. It’s the closest thing you’ll get to a countryside run without leaving the underground network.
Rough Runner is a combination of distance running and epic obstacles, each inspired by game shows such as Total Wipeout, Takeshi’s Castle, Gladiators, and Fun House. Expect sweeper arms, gym rings, big balls and yes, The Travelator. Join us for a 5k or 10k event and you’ll have something pretty spectacular to talk about on the tube ride home.
Roughian Rascals is also back in 2019, but bigger and better, with wet obstacles for the kids! This is a 1 mile course designed specifically for adventure-seeking kids from 7 to 12 years old.
