SURVIVAL RUN™ is not an obstacle course race, an adventure race, an ultra marathon or a survival skills event, but an adaptation of all of these.
SURVIVAL RUN™ is all about adapting to the environment and taking on challenges that are part of the culture and location where the event takes place. SURVIVAL RUN™ does not pretend to be dangerous, it *IS* dangerous. That is why it is by application only and allows only those who are truly physically and mentally prepared to take on the extreme challenges.
Hacking your way through forests with a locally-sourced machete? Climbing a volcano? Slim chance in completing the event? Check, check and check. Responsible for one of the most arduous and notorious endurance events in the world today, Team SISU’s very own Cookie talks to the man that created this monster of an event – Josue Stephens.
