Construction Industry takes on game show inspired obstacle course Rough Runner

Over 75 brave individuals from across the construction industry took part in Rough Runner on Saturday the 7th September at Finsbury Park, and on the 5th and 6th of October in South London, raising over £9,100 and counting in aid of CRASH Charity.

Teams from CRASH Patron companies: AECOM, Arcadis, Areen Design, Ben Adams Architects, Forterra, Hilti GB and Fundraising Champions Child Graddon Lewis, Guildmore and N-Able Group completed 5km and 10km courses, facing Total Wipeout and Gladiators style obstacles. There was a giant ball pit, water slides and monkey bars and all teams finished by tackling the infamous Travelator – a giant running machine on an incline going in the opposite direction.

Kate Marsh, Senior Partnership Manager at CRASH said:

‘‘It was wonderful to see so many of you supporting CRASH through this challenge. Thank you to everyone who took part in Rough Runner and those who donated. Your brilliant fundraising efforts enable CRASH to continue supporting homelessness charities and hospices with their building projects.’’

We are so grateful to our goody bag sponsors 8build, Hilti, OCR Magazine, Dickies, and Peppersmith Mints for their donation of gifts to help refuel our runners!
