Ghost Stalker: Week 4 | 10K

  • Brief

Instructions

  • Perform two separate best-effort runs throughout the week for the distance prescribed below. The first attempt will be scored for time, i.e. faster the time, the most points scored. The second attempt is for bonus points. Better your previous time to earn 20 bonus points.

    Distance

    10km / 6.2 miles

Requirements

  • Finish in the same place in which you started or prove an elevation loss of no less than 1m

    To prevent participants running down a huge incline to get a good time we require them to finish the run in the same place in which they started. You can achieve this by either running a looped circuit or  running out half way, turning around, and returning to your starting position. Alternately, if you've able to prove an elevation loss of no less than 1m through your fitness tracker, you will be permitted to run a point to point route.

  • Your second attempt must follow the exact same route as the first attempt

  • 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%.

Recommendations

  • 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.
