Do you fancy a challenge?

The Survival is a friendly event open to runners and walkers based on an orienteering course of about 26 miles or a shorter course of about 15 miles, to be completed within the 12-hour time limit. 

As its name suggests this is a challenge event and not to be taken lightly, the weather and routes can be challenging and you need to have appropriate navigation and outdoor experience.

The event can be completed as an individual or as part of a group.

There will be a series of checkpoints identified by a grid reference and description. Your aim is to visit each checkpoint or via point in the order given on the route card.

Checkpoints are manned by Search and Rescue personnel with drinks available at some. We ask that you bring a mug with you to reduce our landfill!

All competitors will be provided with a hot meal at the end of the event.

The following kit is considered essential; Map and compass, Emergency Food, Survival bag, Whistle, windproofs and full waterproofs. You will also need a mug for your drinks at pit stops! (Mugs can be ordered with your entry.)

The event is one of the major fundraisers for the Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team. This event is widely embraced by the local community as a way of funding a voluntary organisation which benefits the public.
