Great news, Bear fans!
Start hitting the BGEpicTraining hard, because there’s a new Ultimate Fitness Race coming and Bear Grylls is bringing it!
The first Bear Grylls Survival Race will be in Trent Park in London on the 3rd and 4th of October!
They are calling this race “the toughest survival race and will challenge even the most experienced.”
I am extremely excited and can only hope I make it back to the UK by then!
As of now, it looks like there are 4 events:
– Ultimate Survival Race
– 10K Race
– 5K Race
– Cubs Race
Here is a tentative schedule of what to expect:
Saturday – Cubs Race, 5km and 10km
Sunday – 30km Ultimate Survival Challenge
Obstacles – unique obstacles and challenges.
Full day out – Expo and Exhibition stands
I think it’s amazing they are having a Cubs race for kids! What an amazingly fun thing for kids to do!
There will also be a “Survival and Outdoor Festival”. I’m curious to find out if that will be after the races, or if it will be a continuous event throughout the weekend.
If you’re planning on going, hoping to go or just want some motivation to get in shape before October, Gryller @ChrisYoungUK created a Facebook group that you can join! He kindly shared the link in the comments, but here is the link as well: Bear Grylls Survival Race Competitors
I will keep posting more information as I find out more.
In the mean time, check out this video of Bear talking about the Survival Race!
So start doing your p90x and your BGEpicTraining from Your Life: Train For It and get in shape! You can bet that if you can’t make it to London, he’ll be coming to many more areas around the World in the future!
