The dust has settled for another year. The echoes of blunt machetes hacking have faded from the jungle, the bamboo clumps stand defiantly despite the onslaught, the Mozorola ferry is catering for customers again instead of free diving Survival Runners, the birds have birdshit island to themselves again to poop in peace. The locals are still chattering from Balgue to El Quino about the ‘gringos locos’ dragging 5 metre bamboo sections behind their bikes – that should provide entertainment in the bars right through the summer.
The first group of applicants to Survival Run Canada have been reviewed. The quality of applicants has been impressive - we are going to have to work hard to be sure the course is hard enough to challenge them!
We are in the process of negotiating accommodation and transport packages with local partners, to make this race a trouble-free experience. Watch this spot for updates!
The application fee for Survival Run Canada is $20. Registration fees have been set to slide from an early-bird rate of $550 until December 31, 2016; $650 until May 31, 2017; and to $750 until August 13, 2017. All prices in Canadian Dollars.

Please read the description, rules and requirements carefully before applying - note that this is a graduate level race, meaning you require past ultra-marathon or comparable experience, and will be faced with physically and mentally demanding obstacles.
