Rat Race Survival of the Fittest is surging forward into its second decade, making it the longest-running 10km obstacle race anywhere. Our Nottingham event is taking place for its 11th year in which time we have taken Survival to over 250,000 racers around the UK and Australia. We are really excited to bring all of that experience to our new home at the National Water Sports Centre. As the undisputed Kings and Queens of adventure sports events, Rat Race will shift Survival up a notch for 2018, combining our extensive obstacle expertise with the wet and muddy terrain on offer at this awesome aquatic arena.
New for 2018 will be the upgrade option to Go Super and take on the second lap for those who want more: Thats a half-marathon serving of some serious mud, water and obstacles. Also returning is the kayak stage which became an instant favourite after its debut in 17. Once the race 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.

Train hard. Front up. Become a Survivor.

Dawn breaks and in the crisp autumn air of Scotlands Capital a quite remarkable new event gets underway. Enveloped within the beating heart of this most famous of cities, the runners of the inaugural Ultra Tour of Edinburgh set off with a Braveheart charge down the most famous street in Scotland the Royal Mile. Their course then weaves 50km through streets, alleyways, onto hills, up crags, past monuments, museums, seats of Royalty, Government and up and down 3000 feet of ascent and descent.

The Ultra Tour of Edinburgh is unique. Many events claim to be. But this one is an Ultra Run in a city a city like no other. Rat Race is the UKs best known adventure sports outfit and our company was forged on the streets of Edinburgh in 2004 with the staging there of our first ever event. It is to our spiritual home that 13 years on, we bring a superlatively doable Ultra. 50km on foot is no mean feat but for all those out there who think they can go that extra mile, you can. And what better place to do so than somewhere so hauntingly beautiful, rugged, gnarled and famous in equal measure.

Mongol 100 the most surreal, audacious and hauntingly beautiful adventure challenge known to Man. The objective is to traverse the entirety of the lake from north to south, by any means Foot, skate or bike. It is also the inaugural journey in the brand-new Rat Race Bucket List Series of global adventures.

This challenge is open to all comers. It is hard; make no mistake. Perhaps the hardest thing you will ever take on. Not just because of the physical challenge. It is cold. Very very cold. That cold will test everyone; whoever you are and however capable you are. But our mantra is for you to get to the start line and we will help you get to the end. And in so doing achieve something extraordinary.

Rat Race is the UKs largest and most respected adventure event operator. We have catered to over 1 000 000 customers in nearly 15 years of operation. The 100 will, of course, unfold with typical Rat Race flare, expert event management and unwavering commitment to safety throughout.

This is probably the hardest off-road-Tweed-clad-pipe-lit-plus-four-and-headtorch-wearing run that exists. We send you across rivers, through forests and over a mountain or 2 in the pitch dark of a chilly March night. Choose to go Half Stalker or for those who have the true minerals, take on the Full Stalker. You can even start with the intention to go Full and bail out on to the Half if you crumble.

Once the race is over, its time for the infamous Mighty Beerstalker Party in our huge heated tent; with grub, Wainwright Golden Beer, bands and the trademark crowdsurfing til late into the night. Party access is included with every race entry and you can roll out of the bar straight into our amazing camp-site under the stars. Get a free pint and a bacon roll the morning after the night before when you buy a camping ticket.
