SURVIVAL RUN is a race concept created and developed by FUEGO Y AGUA ENDURANCE and was born on Isla de Ometepe, Nicaragua. Since then it has expanded to Australia, Canada and the US and is still growing.
SURVIVAL RUN is not an obstacle course race (OCR), an adventure race, an ultramarathon or a survival skills event, but an adaptation of all of these. SURVIVAL RUN is all about adapting to the environment and taking on challenges that are part of the culture and location where the event takes place. SURVIVAL RUN does not pretend to be dangerous, it is dangerous.
That is why it is only for those who are truly physically and mentally prepared to take on the extreme challenges.
People who want to push themselves beyond ordinary experience, who want to be challenged to think and adapt as well as endure, and who set themselves apart from the pack as part of a special tribe, a combination of athlete and adventurer, endurance elite and explorer, survivalist and SURVIVAL RUNNER.
SURVIVAL RUN requires its athletes to swear an oath: "If I get hurt, lost or die, it is my own damn fault." If you agree with that statement: then you are eligible to apply.
