Ultimate Survivor

Are you ready for the ULTIMATE challenge?

Clear your diaries and get your racing shoes on for Saturday, September 30, 2017! The Bear Grylls Survival Race grand finale is happening in London – 30 kilometres of pure survival adventure! If you play your training right, you may be one of the lucky 1,000 participants to compete for the Ultimate Survivor title. This race is only for the most seasoned of athletes, but you can try your luck if you’ve been training hard – dedication and preparedness is key!

Created by Bear Grylls and his team of mountain and Survival experts, this is a course like no other. You will make your way through our 30k course with 100+ Obstacles and 10 Survival Challenges in each of our Survival Zones – each one as difficult as the next. You will need to keep moving!

Strength, agility, balance, resourcefulness and determination are just a few of the attributes you will require to complete these gruelling tasks and make your way to the finish line first if you have your eye on the Ultimate Survivor trophy and prize.

This is the 30Km race which truly separates the Ultimate Survivors from the Survivors. In 2016, we saw an incredible race with many people showing true survival instincts and determination by adapting to new challenges and overcoming adversity over and over again over the 30 km.

This year we will step it up again with a larger field size and more challenges, even Bear himself had to ask “if we were serious” when we agreed on the final scope for this epic event. Only 30Km, 100+ Obstacles and 10 Survival Challenges stand between you and becoming an Ultimate Survivor!

BG Survival Challenges

In 2017, every Bear Grylls Survival Race will contain a number of unique Survival Challenges. A huge success in our 2016 series thanks to our dedicated partners, the Survival Challenges are back again to see how tough you really are! There is no better way than to tackle the challenges than at the BGSR, building your confidence, and honing your skills – preparedness is key.

What are the Survival Challenges?

Anything that Bear and the team believe could help you overcome potentially life threatening survival situations. You will need to learn and practice these skills both during and after the race we hope to always be prepared for what life throws at you! Our team will test your strength, agility, targeting, evasion, memory, observation, and a variety of other core skills across a variety of survival situations. Our Jungle, Arctic, Desert, and Mountain challenges will see the beginner and more seasoned survivor tested to their absolute limits!
