Born Survivor - STORM THE CASTLE 2019

Recruit your buddies for the UK's Ultimate Obstacle Course Mission set at the stunning Lowther Castle within the monster backdrop of Lake District National Park! 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:

This course is designed by Elite Royal Marine Commandos and features over 30 + Awesome Military Grade Obstacles spread over 12km of undulating Lake District terrain! This is the optimum test for teams/individuals and guaranteed to take you on the ultimate adventure. You will negotiate breathtaking slides, cold water obstacles, climbing nets, underground tunnels, scaling walls and other Top Secret Obstacles, not forgetting our brand new Big Wall Finisher....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 wellbeing 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!

-Car Park is CASH ONLY - £5 per car/ £10 per minibus. (Strictly no parking on approach roads, we have informed the local authorities and any unauthorized parked cars will be towed away.) 
-INOV8 are offering trainer hire at £5. Get in quick as they sell out fast!
