Course Description:

SURVIVAL RUN is not an obstacle course race, an adventure race, or an ultra-marathon. It is an original combination of all of these. It is not a standard definition obstacle course race, with man-made mud, manufactured obstacles and gimmicky fire jumps. Survival Run is all about adapting to the environment and taking on challenges that are part of the historic indigenous culture and unique location where the event takes place.
That is why athletes must apply to participate. Only those who are truly prepared to take on these extreme challenges will be considered.
As with all of the BUCKLEY'S CHANCE races, SURVIVAL RUN is ""unsupported"" meaning, athletes will be called upon to carry all required hydration and nutrition themselves. If they run out of water or food they will need to source it from the natural environment, and ensure that it has been purified before consumption.

Aid Stations:

If you are participating in the 10km or 25km events and are concerned that you will be unable to carry all required hydration we strongly suggest that you bring a water purifier so you can source additional water on the course. For all 50km runners - a water purifier is mandatory.


If you are speedy enough to pip the others to the post, there are also Trophy’s for first, second and third male and female in each distance (10km/25km/50km). Survival Runners will also receive some fantastic race swag... but they will have to earn their individual medallions.




There is plenty of parking adjacent to the Race Village

Post Party:

On Saturday Night (post Survival Run) we will be holding a number of social activities including: Inaugural ""Beer Mile"", BBQ Dinner & Entertainment for runners, supporters and volunteers (Bookings required)
