What? 24-Hour Endurance Survival Race

Survival Run™ Nicaragua is an 80km+ Ultra Distance Survival Race on the volcanic jungles of Isla de Ometepe in Nicaragua. The objective of this race is to strip you of all comforts and to put you in true survival mode. The obstacles/challenges are natural and based on the daily survival of the traditional local culture of Nicaragua. The race starts and finishes at Finca San Juan de la Isla.

This is not your average ultra marathon, adventure race or obstacle course. You will not be scaling walls, doing burpees, kayaking or only running for hours on end, but you will be doing things you have never done before! You will be challenged with climbing, swimming/diving, jungle rivers & lakes, carrying all sorts of things, digging, running brutal terrain, throwing, memorizing, and surviving in this epic event!

This race has aggressive cutoffs and requires ultra marathon distance experience. Most of the course and challenges are not revealed until race day; be ready for anything!

Awards for Survival Run™ 1st Place Male Solo, Female Solo & Team categories.
