Born Survivor 2024

Are you registering as an individual or as part of a corporate team (through work)?(Required)

Recruit your buddies for what will be the UK’s Ultimate Obstacle Course Mission set at the stunning Capesthorne Hall overlooking the immense Jodrell Bank! 

This is the Ultimate Team Mission for 2024 and one certainly worthy of the awesome medal that will be pinned on your chest after completing this glorious raid! Test your physical/mental resolve and in doing so forge a team camaraderie that can only be truly replicated in a Military inspired environment.

More info on the Born Survivor website here.

What to expect

This course is designed by Elite Royal Marine Commandos and features 30 Awesome Military Grade Obstacles incorporating a 10km Classic Course, 10km Elite Squadron competitive wave and a 5km Survivor option!

The course is guaranteed to take you on the ultimate adventure as you negotiate breath taking slides, cold water obstacles, climbing nets, underground tunnels such as The Great Escape, climbing walls and other Top Secret Obstacles, not forgetting the infamous Big Wall Finisher….THE BLITZ!

Celebrate your victory afterwards and enjoy some top quality food before heading to our awesome Survivor Stripes Bar to enjoy the after party with our resident 7 piece Band The Jager Maestros.

Spectators are welcome to explore the beautiful nearby grounds of Capesthorne Hall and chill out in the buzzing Born Survivor event village before they cheer you on as you tackle the epic course finale.

Who can sign up?

Prepare to carry your team to glory and rally the troops for the optimum team building day for Gym Groups, Boot Camps, Lone Adventurers, Work Colleagues, Sports Teams, Stags & Hens and Birthday Parties etc.

If you dare take on this adventure you’ll need a stiff upper lip to conquer the challenge alone. We encourage teamwork and even if you don’t enter as a team we know you’ll assist your fellow Survivors in completing the course. But it’s not a race; it’s designed as a challenge for everyone over the age of 16 to tackle at their pace, whatever their ability.

Have you got what it takes? Will power is key here, as they say in the Military, if the mind is willing….the body will follow!

Please note that you must be age 16 and over to participate in Born Survivor.


Registration is cheaper when signing up with East Cheshire Hospice!

Places are a discounted £50 each and you can sign up to do a 10km (30 obstacles) or a 5k (20 obstacles) – both are the same price.
