Based on a range of iconic TV challenge shows, including Total Wipeout, Takeshi's Castle and Ninja Warrior, the course is open to people of all ages and fitness levels.

The event will be held over two days at Lambton Estate, County Durham, with 5km, 10km and 15km distances and differing courses to choose from.

Rough Runner is designed to be a fun day out for the whole family, and also hopes to encourage people to lead more active lives.
