Hill Dance is inspired by the infamous Special Forces selection exercise, The Fan Dance, where recruits are required to hill-march up and over the highest point in South Britain, Pen Y Fan...twice!
Accumulate the elevation gain in relation to your level of entry across the week. The elevation may be split up into multiple workouts across the week, however, Bonus Points will be awarded for the fewer workouts taken to achieve the elevation target.
Perform Hill Repeats
Some people may not have the luxury of living next to a range of hills in which to accumulate the elevation gain in one hit. To those people, we recommend finding the biggest point of elevation they have nearby and performing hill repeats until they hit their elevation target. This may be considered boring but this is a test of mental resilience as well as physical endurance after all.
Plan your route
Some fitness trackers do not track elevation in realtime whilst running. That's why we always recommend planning your route before hand on a route planner like PlotaRoute to ensure you both hit your target and do not go over target needlessly.
