It’s going to be the biggest team Born Survivor has ever seen.

One team. One world record. One thousand people. One hundred thousand pounds. ONE hospice.

The Visitor and its sister paper the Lancaster Guardian have teamed up with Fitness Formation and Born Survivor to raise £100,000 toward the Save Our Hospice campaign for St John’s in Lancaster.

We are bidding to break the Guinness World Record for the biggest team ever to take part in an organised obstacle course event - by bringing together 1,000 people for Born Survivor at Lowther Castle, in the Lake District, on April 4 2015.

Born Survivor is one of the UK’s toughest 10km events, featuring more than 30 military inspired obstacles to tackle along the way.

Firstly you need to sign up for the event itself. You can do this via the St. John’s Hospice, Born Survivor or Fitness Formation websites.

In order to help break the world record you need to make sure you also register for fundraising through the official Born Hero campaign team at:

We want each member of team Fitness Formation Born Heroes’ to try and raise a minimum £100 each - that £100 represents four hours of care by St John’s Hospice team, who work with people with life-limiting illness both at the Slyne Road Hospice and people’s homes.

Anybody who raises more than £199 for the campaign will have their Born Survivor registration fee refunded. This is the biggest event in the Save Our Hospice campaign so far - we launched last year to raise half a million pounds to ensure its survival for the future generations.
