Born Survivor - Assault On Capesthorne Hall


Recruit your buddies for what will be the UK's Ultimate Obstacle Course Mission set at the stunning Capesthorne Hall overlooking the immense Jodrell Bank!

This is the Ultimate Team Mission for 2022 and one certainly worthy of the awesome medal that will be pinned on your chest after completing this glorious raid! Test your physical/mental resolve and in doing so forge a team camaraderie that can only be truly replicated in a Military inspired environment.

What To Expect:

This course is designed by Elite Royal Marine Commandos and features 35 Awesome Military Grade Obstacles incorporating a 10km Classic Course, 10km Elite Squadron competitive wave and a 5km Survivor option!

Our course is guaranteed to take you on the ultimate adventure as you negotiate breath taking slides, cold water obstacles, climbing nets, underground tunnels such as The Great Escape, climbing walls and other Top Secret Obstacles, not forgetting our infamous Big Wall Finisher....THE BLITZ!

Celebrate your victory afterwards and enjoy some top quality food before heading to our awesome Survivor Stripes Bar to enjoy the musical acoustic and vocal talents of The Coulton Brothers...not to mention the awesome and fun Jager Maestros.

Corporate Mission?

No scenario training here...This course is for real and is guaranteed to reinforce your team's robustness, togetherness and reliance upon one another within a live, challenging and fun environment. Boost mental and physical health and well-being within the work place by signing up early...this will focus your team to prepare and unite in preparation for this epic experience. The end product will be a day of success and accomplishment that you simply cannot replicate in the work environment! Looking for that team building exercise that seemingly doesn't exist....This Is It!

Entries close this Friday (29.04.2022) at 4pm

All 'unregistered' entries where sent a reminder to complete their details in full before entries close or they will not be able to take part on event day. (Unregistered entries are people who used the 'Speedy Checkout' feature when purchasing their ticket). Below is a step by step guide on how to do this:

If you can no longer attend, you have until Friday to either defer until next year or transfer your entry to someone else. Failure to complete either of these options when you can't make it on the 7th will result in you losing out on your ticket and you will not be able to transfer to another event in the future. 

If you'd like to defer your entry to next year, please note that this incurs a £10 administration fee which is used to pay for your medal, t-shirt and headbuff that we have already purchased. This must be done before ticket sales end on 29.04.2022, after this date no changes can be made to any entries and the opportunity to defer or transfer your entry will have passed. 

Another option would be to sell or transfer your ticket to another person. Again the same time frame is relevant. 

All finalised wave times will be sent out on 1st May via email. If you are part of a team, you will all have the same start time. As per our terms and conditions no further changes to your wave time or entry can be made. Please refrain from emailing as we will be out on course preparing for next week.

On the day you will need to bring with you a signed copy of our waiver form, this needs to be handed in by each individual at registration. You can download a copy of our waiver from the link below.

Our event guide pack will be sent out to you via email next week. This will have everything that you need to know ready for event day. Please ensure you take time to thoroughly read this through.

Thanks for taking the time to read,

If we have missed the deadline for selecting our t-shirt size then will we just have to get whatever is available on the day? Unfortunately, I couldn't see how to pick my size and have only just seen the comments below.

Just checking my entry/ticket. I do not appear to have been sent a waiver form with my ticket/confirmation of registration back in September. Please would you send one to me.
