Race Description

2011 saw an Epic Tri Nations Series return to Cardiff, Edinburgh and Nottingham. This trilogy was also joined for the first time by a tumultuous finale event at London’s Battersea Power Station. We are now back for 2012: Expect more obstacles, the same amazing venues, totally engaging courses and lashings of Survival Spirit.

Packing a challenging route in each host city, with tough and engaging obstacles throughout the course, you will pit your wits against 1000s of fellow “Survival” competitors in a test of stamina, grit, speed and guts. Possibly the UK’s toughest obstacle course? Maybe. Possibly the UK’s most action-packed run? Maybe. The must to-do events of 2012? Definitely.

OK – this one is a bit different. But lets start by explaining what is the same. Another Survival first, Survival by Night consists of a shorter running course than the Classic event, set totally within the Power Station site and covering around 5km of running. The obstacles are the same as during the day, and there are as many of them as during the day time event. You register the same way, the timing system is the same and you will get the same great Survival Technical T shirt as those taking part by day. Entries are open to solos and teams as normal too.
Wave sizes will be reduced to 250 per wave in order to deal with capacity on the shorter course. But the best bit? We are going to switch on the floodlights and provide you with your very own nocturnal race-track. You’ll stll need a head torch mind you, as some bits of the course will be very dark indeed. The sensation of running in the dark and the cool air of the early night will really stimulate and the revelry that awaits you at the MH Beer Tent when you return will be just what you need to kick back and reflect on this surreal running experience. You can do either the daytime or the nighttime events, or you can do them both if you like. If you choose to do the pair, you will also receive a whopping 50% off the regular cost of the night-time event – simply stunning value!
