Men's Health Survival of The Fittest - Nottingham

Men’s Health Survival of the Fittest is officially a decade old, making it the longest running obstacle racing series anywhere. These gritty, urban and exhilarating obstacle courses are already well known for that ‘Big Event’ feel and for obstacles you simply don’t see anywhere else, but we figured if we’re having a big birthday, we might as well celebrate in style this time around.

Expect the unexpected as we shift Survival up a notch for 2017, delivering courses in the beating hearts of London, Cardiff, Nottingham and Manchester. Brought to you by the World’s biggest men’s magazine Men’s Health and Rat Race, the undisputed Kings of adventure sport events, we have the machinery and the minerals to engineer truly one-off classics. 

At Survival of the Fittest you’ll discover the obstacles that the other guy won’t build: From container pyramids as big as an office block, to stunt jumps off the top of trucks and the amazing Renault Crossover Climb Triple Lane Travellator, you’ll only find these monsters at our events. 2017 will see some new junk in our trunk too, plus a whole new venue for our longest serving event: Nottingham. Once the race is behind you, grab a drink in our signature beer tent and outdoor beer gardens and enjoy the fantastic vibe in our event villages, with food, music, live MCs and a free finish line photo. Then bask in the glory of becoming a Survivor.


The Really, Really Wet One

The original Survival of the Fittest is ringing the changes for its special 10th anniversary year. In 2017 we’re relocating the Nottingham Event Village to the National Water Sports Centre, a location we have used every year for the past 10 years, but in 2017 this amazing venue is becoming centre stage. Expect a course that delivers multiple dunkings and some truly big-ticket aquatic content. Offering optional extras including on-site parking, hot showers, on-site accommodation, plus that classic Survival Event Village look and feel, together with a swashbuckling amount of water on the course, this is one that is guaranteed to leave you looking and feeling like a drowned Rat at the finish line.
