The Survival Run is a race concept created and developed alongside Ultra Fuego y Agua Nicaragua and was born on Isla de Ometepe, Nicaragua. Since then it has expanded to Australia, Canada and the US and is still growing.

Survival Run is not an obstacle course race (OCR), 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 only for those who are truly physically and mentally prepared to take on the extreme challenges.
