BORN SURVIVOR is a Military Assault Course themed event, designed by members of the elite corps of Mountain and Artic Warfare specialists of the Royal Marine Commandos. Our courses give you the chance to test your all round fitness, mental determination and team work against the same type of challenges and standards as the British Army. You will have to overcome authentic military style obstacles, some special 'survivor surprises', muscle draining mud, rugged terrain, baltic river crossings and your own self doubt to be a SURVIVOR.

Born Survivor is not a race. It's about personal achievement, team working and camaraderie, determination to overcome challenges and above all, a true test of character. There will be no chip timing so make sure you wear a watch!

Make no mistake this is going to be tough, Born Survivor is not your average trail run, it's brutal and raw. You will need to train your body to cope with the challenges and your mind to endure the suffering. Most people know what it is like to run in a flat park or around the streets of their home town or city, but just think about adding gruelling terrain, over 30 purpose built obstacles, water crossings, and crawling through mud, lots of mud!

Born Survivor is an extreme event and as such is designed to push you to your limit. The tough terrain and military style obstacles will make this much, much harder than a standard mud run, 10K or marathon. A structured program of all round strength and fitness training is highly recommended. Check out our Training Page for tips on how best to prepare for one of our events.

Starting everyone at the same time can cause major bottlenecks at barriers and can be a safety issue which is clearly something we are passionate to avoid. Your safety and that of the spectators and event crew is our primary concern. To enable us to safely manage the high number of participants expected you and your team members will start in a wave with a maximum number of entrants at sensible intervals.

When you ENTER you will be asked to select your preferred wave start time. If you register as part of a team your team captain will have selected a start time for you. For safety and numbers per waves we may have to adjust your start time but we will endeavour to keep to a start time as close to that which you originally selected.

To take part in BORN SURVIVOR you have to be a minimum of 18 on event day. There is no maximum age but you are required to sign a waiver to confirm your fitness for the event.
