Rough Runner 2020 - Maggie's Centres

Rough Runner 2020

fundraising event image

Rough Runner is an obstacle course challenge, combining distance running with a variety of unique obstacles along the way.

Each obstacle is inspired by game shows such as Total Wipeout, Takeshi’s Castle, Gladiators, and Fun House so expect sweeper arms, giant pigeon battles, big balls and yes, The Travelator!

No matter if you run as part of a group of family and friends, or on your own, every step you take is helping to make a difference to the lives of people affected by cancer.
