High Walk: Week 1 | Tactical Dash

  • Tactical Dash

The first week's challenge is inspired by the UKSF military pre-training fitness tests, used to establish if the potential recruit has what it takes to hack it as an SF soldier.

  • 1.5 mile run for time

  • Run

Instructions

  • Run 1.5 miles (2.4km) in as quick as time as possible. Walking is allowed, though the participants must be encouraged to push themselves as hard as they can.

Requirements

  • Start and finish in the same location

    To ensure that participants don't just run down a big hill to get a good time/distance, you are required to finish the run in roughly the same spot in which you started. You can achieve this by either running a looped route or by running out halfway, turning around, and returning to your starting position.

  • Set treadmill gradient to 2.5%

    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%.
