Bear Grylls Survival Challenge is the first-ever mass participation event to tackle the sport of survival where participants will apply mental, physical, instinctual, self-reliance and resourceful skills in controlled, competitive survival situations. Participants will compete on a four mile, off-road journey that will take them through 18 unique survival scenario challenges. The course will run across five distinct environments: apocalyptic highway, cave complex, deserted village, mountain ascent/descent and snake INFESTED swamp.

"I developed this course to ask each participant a simple question...being fit is one thing; but are you fit for survival?" said Bear Grylls. "This is a natural progression for endurance sport. Seeking to test not just our physical capabilities, but also our mental agility, resourcefulness and never-say-die spirit in real-life survival situations."

To gamify the Bear Grylls Survival Challenge, a proprietary algorithm has been developed to pair with RFID technology and provide a Bear Grylls Survival Score for each participant immediately upon completing the event. Additionally, a custom Bear Grylls Survival Pack that contains everyday items for application on the course will be provided to each participant.

BGSC will culminate in a finish festival featuring music, sponsor activations, food and beverage, making it the perfect place for participants to check their Bear Grylls Survival Score and re-live the greatest moments of their Bear Grylls Survival Challenge experience.
