    Where: Playa Santo Domingo, Isla de Ometepe, Nicaragua

    Fuego y Agua Survival Run is a 80km+ Ultra Distance Survival Race on the volcanic jungle Isla de Ometepe in Nicaragua. The objective of this race is to strip you of all comforts and to put you in true Survival mode. The obstacles/challenges are natural and based on the daily survival of the local culture on Isla de Ometepe.

    This is not your average ultramarathon, adventure race or obstacle course. You will not be scaling walls, doing burpees, kayaking or only running for hours on end, but you will be doing things you have never done before! You will be challenged with climbing, swimming/diving, jungle rivers & lakes, carrying all sorts of things, digging, running brutal terrain, throwing (maybe throwing up), memorizing, and surviving in this epic event! This race has aggressive cutoffs and requires ultramarathon distance experience. Most of the course and challenges are not revealed until race day; be ready for anything!

  2. Survival Runners are told: “Most of you will not finish”; they are told: “Adapt or die”. See why these instructions are not an exaggeration, not marketing hyperbole, not idle chatter.

    Survival Run requires its athletes to swear an oath: "If I get lost, hurt or die, it is my OWN damn fault." If you agree with that statement: then you are eligible to apply for a Survival Run. Join the Tribe. Register at fuegoyagua.com.

  3. How do you describe a race that takes you through some of the toughest challenges imaginable in one of the wildest and exotic locations on the planet?

    Survival Runners are not scaling 8 foot walls, rolling through manufactured mud pits or doing burpees, but racing on the volcanic island, Isla Ometepe, Nicaragua, where the dramatic landscapes of massive twin volcanoes force Survival Runners to race through dense jungle rainforest, into the clouds and across the crater of an active volcano, through jungle rivers and caldera lagoons, and more. Obstacles are based on the culture, history and daily routines of surviving in this beautiful but harsh environment.

    See what some of Survival Runners are talking about when they are asked to put Survival Run into words, if they can. Join the Tribe. Register at fuegoyagua.com.

  4. What does it take to do one of the world’s hardest and most dangerous race? Survival Runners are a special breed. Survival Run IS NOT your average hometown mud race with manufactured obstacles or dangers; this is REAL! Learn to climb a tree; ropes and bars are for gyms. Fear is your worst enemy on this course; leave it at home.

    With an aggressive cutoff time of 30 hours, Survival Runners MUST be physically able to run over 75km, swim, climb, jump and carry heavy things to complete the course and collect all four medals that together make up the highest Survival Run honor: The medal that declares: “I - DID - NOT - FAIL” .

    Being prepared for anything is the only thing that will get you through this. If you do Survival Run, you really will be part of an elite few.

  5. What is success, what is failure? Not all failures are equal, and what might appear to be a failure can be something more. Survival Runners build their own medal as they complete obstacles along the 75 km course in the 30 hours they have to do the race. The four piece medal, “I – DID – NOT – FAIL”, only shows that in full if all challenges are met successfully in the allotted time cutoffs.

    To Survival Runners, even if your medal quest ends with just one or two pieces that say “FAIL” or “I FAIL,” it is very much a badge of honor, and still is a medal displayed with extreme pride and the knowledge of how tough a “fail” the race truly was. One medal piece or all four, the competitors become part of an elite club – Survival Runner. Join the Tribe. Register at fuegoyagua.com.
