Survival of the fittest participant

Survival of the Fittest

A colossal 10k urban assault course in each host city: Cardiff, Nottingham, Edinburgh, Manchester and London.

Men's Health Survival of the Fittest is a  survival event for all: men, women, teams and solo contenders.

Expect loads of obstacles, iconic urban venues, totally engaging courses. You will tackle gritty and engaging obstacle zones throughout the course, pitting your wits against 1000s of fellow competitors in a test of stamina, grit, speed and guts.

And then you’ll hit the massive beer tent - mud, sweat and beers!
