Bear Grylls Survival Race and Festival

Bear Grylls Survival Race and Festival

Thousands of runners had just taken part in the very first Bear Grylls Survival Race run around the beautiful North London Trent Park which dates back to the fourteenth century.

“A walk in the park?” was the question I asked. “You must be joking” was the answer I kept hearing. Thousands of runners had just taken part in the very first Bear Grylls Survival Race. With a kids race on offer, a 5k, 10k and 30k options everyone found a suitable challenge, with a smile on their faces – plus a lot of mud.

The race was run around the beautiful north London Trent Park which dates back to the fourteenth century where you’d hardly know you were in London.

But it wasn’t just a weekend of obstacle races, the event was also a chance for many like-minded organisations, musicians and charities who all share the BG spirit to gather and experience a memorable weekend.

Parajet were invited to attend and of course show off our amazing Bear Grylls Paramotor, the Volution 3 and the Zenith paramotors. Arriving at the park in the afternoon it was dark by the time we’d finished assembling our area and the only thing left to do was work out where to sleep.

A thank you goes out to the hundreds of amazing people who stopped to talk to us over the weekend – I hope we’ve inspired you to learn to fly. For those looking skyward at just the right moment, a sight of Bear Grylls flying his BG Parajet paramotor over the event was a definite highlight. Parajet hope to be back next year and you never know – maybe one of us will be mad enough to enter the race!
