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!
For the Rokman Hill Dance, over the course of the week, you must run the total of the set elevation target specific to your level of entry.
✅ Take the necessary health and safety precautions: This is a brutal endurance challenge for which you are responsible for your own health and safety. It is imperative that you read through, understand and follow our health and safety guidelines before you embark on your challenge attempt. Challenge Health & Safety Guidelines
✅ Plan your route beforehand: We strongly recommend that you plan your route before embarking on your challenge. By planning your route with an online running route planner it leaves out the guesswork, allowing you to know the distance and elevation of your course before you embark on the challenge.
✅ Utilise hill-repeats: Like most people, you're probably not lucky enough to have a mountain range on your doorstep. If this is the case, we recommend running repeats up the biggest hill you have locally. This may seem repetitive but this is as much a mental challenge as it is a physical one. Use an online route planning tool to work out the hill's elevation and how many repeats are required to achieve your target.
✅ Break it up: If you need to, you can break up the elevation into multiple runs throughout the week. We understand that fitting a large, time-consuming challenge like this into your schedule can be a challenge in itself. That's why this is set as a weekly total and not a single attempt task.
