This is NOT a timed event - if you want to brag about times then please bring a watch. The BSES is about pushing your limits to rise up to the competition on the day and earning a finish position to be proud of. We're expecting to see some big OCR names on the start line and with access to a clear and fresh course, the pace will be brutally fast giving you the opportunity to pitch yourself against the best of the best.

Those brave enough to enter the Born Survivor Elite Squadron will receive the standard competitor goodies and also be rewarded handsomely with a range of exclusive BSES perks, including:

  • Exclusive Born Survivor Elite Squadron T-shirt

  • Online listing of your finishing place in the pack
  • Free Second Lap later that day
  • Access to a clear and uninterrupted mega course
  • Ultimate bragging rights
The Course

Born Survivor Elite Squadron competitors will advance before anyone else onto the course and complete one lap. The distance is approximately 10KM and there will be 30 legendary Born Survivor obstacle challenges evenly spaced along the route for you to overcome.

Born Survivor course routes are designed to make the most of natural terrain and always aim to be as challenging as possible. Both events offer distinctly different terrain - the Lake District course has some hellish hills and river crossings and the Manchester course is famous for ridiculous and unforgiving muddy sections.
