For “good” service during the week, on Sunday's, recruits can be awarded with a 10km dash, but this time in full gear — with a machine gun, helmet, body armour, and duffel bag on their backs.
For our Soviet Sunday challenge you are required to take on a 10km march whilst bearing a weight specific to your level of entry.
You can perform the challenge on any day of the week
Contrary to the name, you can complete this challenge on whatever day during the week is convenient.
You must start and finish in roughly the same location
As this is a timed challenge, to stop people just running down a hill to get the best time possible, you are required to end your attempt roughly in the same location in which you started. You can achieve this my either running out half way and then turning back on yourself, or, running a single looped route, or, running multiple loops of a smaller route.
Use a weighted rucksack or weighted vest
To carry the weight we recommend either a weighted rucksack or weights vest. Be sure that the weighted is loaded correctly and the straps are tightened accordingly.
e.g. Strava, Garmin, Map My Run, etc...
