Welcome to the UK’s original Obstacle Run Series! 

Welcome to the UK’s original Obstacle Run Series!

Now in its 12th year, Rat Race Survival of the Fittest is the longest running 10km obstacle running series anywhere in the World. In this time we have taken Survival to over 250,000 racers around the UK and even as far afield as Australia, always behind the much loved and universally trusted Rat Race brand. For 2019 we are expanding the line-up with our long-serving classic at Nottingham being joined by brand new venues in York and The Lakes, giving rise to the Survival 2019 trilogy. As the undisputed Kings and Queens of adventure sport events, Rat Race will be shifting Survival up a notch for 2019, combining our extensive obstacle expertise with the outstanding muddy terrain on offer at each one of these awesome venues. 
ALL events in 2019 will feature our trademark 10k course, with the optional upgrade option to ‘Go Super’ and take on a second lap for those who want more: That’s a half-marathon serving of some serious mud, water and obstacles for those who have the minerals.
We will also feature a kids’ run at all venues. Once the run is behind you, make sure to grab a drink in our signature Survival beer tent and outdoor beer garden.

 


 Then enjoy the fantastic vibe in our event village, with food, music and live MCs. At some venues, we will also offer the ubiquitous Rat Race camping village; a place to crash pre or post event in our toasty serviced tent accommodation, with hot showers, food, beer and good times laid on as standard.

Train hard. Front up. Become a Survivor.
