  • Set treadmill to 2.5% gradient

    It is preferred that you tackle this challenge outside. However, if you are unable to do so, you may use a treadmill to complete the challenge. If you do decide to use a treadmill, you must set the treadmill gradient to 2.5%.

  • Plan your route before hand

    Use a route planner to plot your route before you set off. Try and select the flattest route possible with as little disturbances as possible, i.e. road crossings.

  • Stay hydrated

    It’s vital you stay hydrated during your challenge. Ensure you factor in water breaks to keep your body operating at peak performance – and don’t forget to stretch after completing to help your body recover.

  • Let others know

    When performing any challenge, we strongly recommend you let a friend or family member know what you are doing and where and when you are doing it and what time you are expected to return incase you face any difficulty. Be sure to take a mobile phone with you on every run.
