Born Survivor - Gisburn Lancashire

Recruit your buddies for the UK's Ultimate Military Obstacle Course Mission set in the stunning Ribble Valley Lancashire overlooking the Yorkshire Dales!

This is simply the toughest and most rugged Born Survivor Course of them all and one that is certainly worthy of the awesome medal that will be pinned on your chest after completing this glorious mission! Test your physical/mental resolve and in doing so forge a team camaraderie that can only be replicated in a Military inspired environment.

What To Expect:

Our obstacle courses are designed by Elite Royal Marines Commandos and features over 30 + Awesome Military Grade Obstacles.

This is the optimum test for teams/individuals and guaranteed to take you on the ultimate adventure. You will negotiate breath taking slides, River Crossings and natural obstacles, climbing nets, underground tunnels, scaling walls and numerous Top Secret Obstacles, not forgetting our huge Finisher Wall...THE BLITZ!

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!

Please get in touch at [email protected] for more information on how we can assist you to raise money for your charity. We will send you our charity pack explaining charity ticket options.


Prepare to carry your team to glory and rally the troops for the optimum team building day for Gym Groups, Boot Camps, Lone Adventurers, Work Colleagues, Sports Teams, Stags & Hens and Birthday Parties etc. Going it alone?...You'll be amongst friends on our courses so don't worry about venturing out without a team!

Have you got what it takes? Will power is key here, as they say in the Military, if the mind is willing....the body will follow!

Survive the mission and return to base for some well deserved R & R where your team will be photographed and presented with medals to mark their success! Celebrate with your team at our after party and enjoy 'tasty Scran' along with a thirst quenching beer in the live music buzz of the thriving Born Survivor Stripes Bar!

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. Failure to bring a copy of your signed waiver will result in you not being able to take part. You can download a copy of our waiver from the link below.

Survivors!!!! Entries close on Monday 12th Sept at 9am! 

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 (9th) 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 £15 administration fee which is used to pay for your medal, t-shirt and headbuff that we have already purchased. This must be done before 09.09.2022, 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 in the afternoon on Monday 12th September 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. Failure to bring a copy of your signed waiver will result in you not being able to take part. 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,
