LONDON 22ND NOV 2014 CONFIRMED!
Survival is going to Wembley for 2014! We’ve got an iconic new home at Wembley Park, a brand-spanking new course, monster builds and one beast of an after party once you’ve earned your pint!
In true Survival Spirit we’re going uber-urban with our new location at Wembley Park. The course will loop around Wembley Stadium before taking you through a gauntlet of obstacles packed in on top of one another. Prepare for dunkings, dirt and the odd diversion through a river…
From 9am until late afternoon, Start waves of up to 400 people will depart every 15 minutes to tackle the Survival course. The entry numbers will again be capped at 10,000, so make sure you get that entry in fast – November may still seem like a long way away, but it’s sold out every year! The route will again feature around 10k of running with over 20 obstacle zones en route, packing nearly 100 pieces of equipment in throughout.
As darkness descends, we’ll to be switching on the floodlights once more and staging our Survival by Night 5k. This will be an action-packed 5k and will feature 90% of the obstacle content of the 10km.
LONDON NIGHT 5K
Get ready to do it in the dark! Once again we’ll be lighting up your lives at London Night 5k as we pack most of the obstacles from the 10k course into half the distance. Put yourself through the test and pit yourself against the physical attrition of double the punishment in half the distance.
CAN YOU DO THE DOUBLE?
Enter London Day & Night together and you’ll save cash on entry!
All this Survivin’ is thirsty work. We’ll be building a colossal beer tent at the event site once again to ensure you stay properly hydrated after hurling yourself around the course. As you sup on a pint in our monster tent, you can also cheer on your fellow survivors as they weave through the keg carry and back out onto the course. The bar tent in London is our biggest of the lot and has an amazing atmosphere inside. Last year you helped us smash through 100 kegs of ice cold lager and 50 casks of Rat Race Blonde ale! Keep on supping!
Public transport is by far the best way to get to Wembley. Please do not drive.
By Tube: Use the Bakerloo line and get off at Wembley Central then follow the signs to the event village, no more than a 10 minute walk.
TAKE NOTE: The Metropolitan and Jubilee lines are both closed on event day so there is no access to the event from Wembley Park Station.
By Train: Use the Chiltern Railways over ground service and alight at Wembley Stadium to pick up the event sign. This is a good option from Central London as you can get on at Marylebone.
By Bus: There are loads of bus options to get to Wembley, way too many to list here so head to www.tfl.gov.uk for timetables and route maps from your destination
By Bicycle: We’ll have a large bike park at the venue for the day where you’re welcome to leave your bike. Please bring your own LOCK however as this is an unsupervised facility. Boris bikes can be hired from docking stations all over town, but please ensure that if you bring a Boris bike on site, you have a way to lock it up whilst in your care.
By Car: We do NOT recommend travelling by car to this event. However, if it is your choice to drive, parking is available near to the event site in the Wembley Red Car Park. (http://www.wembleyofficialparking.com/content/London-Design-Outlet-Parking)
