Relentless: Week 2 | Stairway to Hell

  • Brief

Instructions

  • Elevation gain accumulator challenge

    Accumulate the elevation gain in relation to your level of entry within 7-days of starting. The challenge 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.

    Advanced: 3,000ft

    Intermediate: 2,250ft

    Moderate: 1,500ft

    Novice: 750ft

Requirements

  • Submit workouts individually

    You must submit each individual workout separately to the submission form.

Recommendations

  • 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 beforehand

    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 hit your target and do not go over needlessly.

Evidencing

  • Fitness Tracker Activity

    Eg: Strava, Garmin, Fitbit...
