Gurkha Run 10k

Monday, August 4th, 2014

Race the Gurkhas, wade, carry, crawl, climb, workout, doku run, curry, beers, rave reviews – The Gurkha Run is back!

Test yourself against the best across the Army’s premier training area, Salisbury Plain. Be prepared for the best (worst) that the land has to offer including some serious hills, waist high water and then the Gurkha fitness station!

Race over a classic 10k distance – it’ll feel much longer – or if up to it, race over the half marathon distance, but both races feature the INFAMOUS DOKO RACE. As part of the British Army’s recruitment process, the Gurkhas run in an uphill race carrying 75lb of stones on their back, but don’t worry, we will supply a MUCH lighter weight for you and the hill is not in Nepal!
