*BREAKING NEWS* THE SURVIVAL RACE PARTNERS WITH THE INTERNATIONAL ARNOLD SPORTS FESTIVAL, BECOMING THE EXCLUSIVE OBSTACLE RACE OF THE LARGEST & MOST SUCCESSFUL FITNESS EVENT IN THE WORLD!
WELCOME TO THE 1ST ANNUAL ARNOLD SPORTS FESTIVAL SURVIVAL RACE!
The Arnold Sports Festival is celebrating its 25th year and we are honored to have the opportunity to join forces with this epic event.
As the original family-focused 5k obstacle course, the core philosophy of the Survival Race family is getting each member of the family unit out into the world and in better shape. Call it, old fashion fun”. Our mission, like The Arnold Sports Festival, is to introduce a healthier and more active lifestyle into as many households as we can. The amount of people taking part and interested in The Survival Race brand is exploding. The last three years have seen unprecedented growth in not only racers, but spectators as well. These individuals, families, and groups come from all walks of life and from a vast array of fitness goals.
It’s about engaging nature, getting dirty, having fun shaping up, and incorporating local communities and families into the mix. On race day the racers are a colorful and excited breed, many of whom traveled long distances to join in the action; scale walls, dash over pits, and truly challenge their minds and bodies like never before.
It’s popular to call modern life a race, but too many people feel like they’re on the sidelines. The Survival Race is about showing them they can get up off that couch, break away from the computers, put aside that game console and get involved — bring the family, get in-shape, and get neck deep in the action.
Life isn’t a race towards a finish line, but a race towards living the best lives we can, and making sure that the family unit/local communities where races happen are healthier, stronger, and more vibrant because of them.
We couldn’t be more pleased to share the same core philosophy and sense of passion as the amazing team behind The Arnold Sports Festival and we know, first hand, that all participants are guaranteed to make awesome memories and develop solid relationships that are sure to last a lifetime.
