An amazing experience with epic obstacles and lots of mud amd laughter along the way. Brilliant marshals throughout the course. Would highly recommend for anyone looking for a challenge or team bonding activity.

I've marshalled a few of the obstacles on both events and the atmosphere is always brilliant. Everyone covered in mud, working hard as a team (or those that get adopted by other groups!) but plenty of laughs and smiles. It really is great to be a part of.The team work really hard to to make it a great experience and the attention to detail is obviously really important.After all that...the after party is always a banger and well worth hanging around for!

Born survivor was something else. It was probably the most challenging thing I’ve ever done but so rewarding and satisfying at the same time. It’s something for everyone to push themselves to there own limits. #believe #achieve

I have taken part in both Born Survivors in 2019; Capesthorne Hall and Lowther Castle. Both events were well organised, all staff were friendly and helpful. The courses were fantastic, lots of mud, water, challenging obstacles!!! But most all everyone had fun, helped and encouraged those that struggled, a really fabulous team event!! Already signed up for 2020 👍
