Rough Runner Challenge back for 2019!

Apr 29, 2019 | Latest News

The family challenge IS BACK.

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

Kids are welcome!

In 2018 our team of Rough Runners and Roughian Rascals took on the challenge, had lots of fun and raised nearly £7000 to support our work ending hunger.

Join our team in 2019! With a picnic party post-event, t-shirts and goodie bags, we’re excited for this fun family day.

Your fundraising supports The Hunger Project to empower communities to break the cycle of poverty and inequality in their villages.

In Bangladesh The Hunger Project works with girls to stand up for their rights, and end child marriage. Rumi’s friends did just that when she was suddenly taken out of school. Watch their inspiring story below:
