The UK’s original 10km Obstacle Run returns!
6th OCTOBER 2018

Rat Race Survival of the Fittest is surging forward into its second decade, making it the longest running 10km obstacle run anywhere. Our Nottingham event is taking place for its 11th year in which time we have taken Survival to over 250,000 racers around the UK and Australia. We are really excited to bring all of that experience to our new home at the National Water Sports Centre. As the undisputed Kings and Queens of adventure sport events, Rat Race love combining our extensive obstacle expertise with the wet and muddy terrain on offer at this awesome aquatic arena. 

New for 2018 will be the upgrade option to ‘Go Super’ and take on a second lap for those who want more: That’s a half-marathon serving of some serious mud, water and obstacles. Also returning is the kayak stage – which became an instant favourite after its debut in ‘17. To set the right vibe and have an enjoyable and safe (yet adventurous) experience there is no race timing of Survival of the Fittest – it is not a race and no-one is keeping score of your time or number of obstacles you complete – it is a chance to take on a wet and wild set of challenges in the company of our supportive marshals and fellow Rat Racers. Once the run is behind you, make sure to grab a drink in our signature Survival beer tent and outdoor beer garden. Then enjoy the fantastic vibe in our event village, with food, music and live MCs.

Train hard. Front up. Become a Survivor.


We’ll see you on the start line. Only the Fittest will Survive.
