Route information
The Born Survivor courses, designed by ex Royal Marines Commandos, are the perfect chance to grab your friends and test yourself to the limit of your physical and mental capacity, all in a buzzing event environment.
This 12km event held on the stunning grounds of Lowther Castle in the Lake District National Park is set to be the toughest Born Survivor course ever to be made. 35+ obstacles spread over 12km of undulating terrain that will see participants tackling breathtaking slides, cold water obstacles, climbing nets, underground tunnels, walls to scale, and the final Big Wall Finisher, The Blitz.
