You must agree that “If I get lost, hurt or die, it is my OWN damn fault!” before you’re eligible to face Survival Run’s brutal 50 to 70km challenges.
At their last race in Texas, contestants started by making their sandals out of sheets of rubber and strips of leather. Making a good job of it was key, because it was all the contestant had to wear on their feet for the next 50km.

In Nicaragua, runners were given a raw egg and instructed to run for 3km along a beach and swim half a mile to an island where their unbroken egg would be exchanged for their registration pack.
Once they’d done that, they could return to the start line and face 70km of climbing volcanos, crossing jungles and all kinds of other craziness.
