ABOUT US...

OUR MISSION...

At Tough Runner UK we’re dedicated to making a difference with events that make athletes feel valued. We’re committed to bring the best value events to Wales. The team have many years experience of taking part in major sporting events around the globe and we are always looking for new innovations that set us apart from the others.

Company directors, Adam, Dan & Ben are passionate to succeed in a mission to carve out Tough Runner UK’s own legacy in sports history and from 2018 we will demonstrate this to the whole of the UK. Our staff and incredible team of volunteers stand ready to ensure you have the best race experience possible.

One of our goals is to grow the running community, drawing in beginners to experience a whole new world of running. We want to be open to all levels of runners, and we want any beginners to know that we will give the person who comes across the finish line last the same treatment as the person who comes across first. 

BEGINNER OR ELITE, IT DOESN’T MATTER...

For the more ‘elite’ athlete, we offer something different. We understand that running at a high level needs new challenges and something new to test their abilities. We are not called Tough Runner for nothing. The races we put on live up to the element of ‘tough’. We guarantee they will have a testing challenge but at the same time an enjoyable experience different from any average race. 

One of our goals is to grow the running community, drawing in beginners to experience a whole new world of running. We want to be open to all levels of runners, and we want any beginners to know that we will give the person who comes across the finish line last the same treatment as the person who comes across first. 

HOW IT STARTED

We originally started organising events back in August 2015 after we singed up to the EDF alpe d’huez triathlon. After taking part in one of the world’s toughest and most celebrated events we found that events back home just didn’t feel like value for money leaving us frustrated after crossing the finish line. Sound familiar?

We are very excited about what we do. We continue to be dedicated to changing the game and making sure that we reward athletes for their hard work and dedication to their sport. We understand that reaching the next level does not happen without a lot of hard work. It demands commitment, perseverance and the kind of vision that sees opportunity where others see limits. Tough Runner UK shares that drive and honors that devotion by delivering the best events possible.

We want you to relish in the excitement of race morning, take time to enjoy the course, endure the challenges along the way and embrace the overwhelming joy as you cross the finish line.

We are also honored to support some of the UK’s most accomplished and respected athletes and coaches from the most dedicated to those who are just starting out.

THE FUTURE IS BRIGHT...
Tough Runner UK is always looking to push the boundaries of trail marathon running and will be bringing new and exciting events all around the UK and future plans for Europe. Come with us on our journey and experience a new challenge, reach your goals and fulfill your drive.
