10-Mile (16km) Weighted Endurance March

Advanced: 20kg
Intermediate: 15kg
Moderate: 10kg
Novice: 5kg

Bonus points awarded for time and elevation gain achieved.

    Challenge Description

    The final challenge is inspired by the Gurkha endurance march which usually takes place in the camp in Pulau Tekong.

    Again, traditionally this endurance march would be performed using a Doko basket to carry the weight, and again, we thankfully don't expect you to. Feel free to use whatever weight you like, however, we strongly recommend either a weighted rucksack or weighted vest for this challenge.

    The added element of elevation gain and time bonus points means this challenge requires a level of careful thought and strategic planning. Include too much elevation in your route and you risk not hitting the target time. Too little and you could miss out on valuable points.
