Event description

Description

Overview:

Walk in the footsteps of SAS Legends...

A three day event which will cover the full route of Endurance, otherwise known as Long Drag. This event has been created initially to help those who are interested in taking on this epic event. It is also suitable for anyone who wishes to increase their hill fitness and experience as well as gaining invaluable knowledge from our DS and MST team.

You will complete a selected route as a group and be given vital information with regards to equipment selection and maintenance, foot care and general guidance to improve your training through knowledge and experience provided by former UK Special Forces and our Mountain Safety Team.

The army call this 'Tabbing' where as the Royal Marines call it Yomping. The word TAB actually comes from the phrase 'Tactical Advance to Battle' describing the method in which soldiers would travel on foot into battle with all their equipment ready to eat, sleep and fight.

Tabbing is very unique as it is a combination of muscle and cardiovascular endurance, burning far more calories than running alone and stimulating more muscle tone than a typical gym session. It also uses the largest muscles in the body, giving a higher calorific output.

Your experience will include practical tips for when you're out on the hills in order to enhance your fitness and endurance. It will also deliver a series of essential 'Know How' skills, hints and tips related to hill fitness.

The event will be split into 3 days. We will cover 25km on day one and the same distance on day two. The remaining distance, approximately 15km, will be covered on day three. Upon purchasing your ticket you will receive your Joining Instructions prior to the event that will detail the route we'll take and equipment required.

At the end of each day there will be a predesignated camping area set out with your evening meal being prepared. There will be some additional theory lessons in the evening before some down time and a night under the stars for a well deserved rest before heading back out the next day.

What’s included:

  • Camping on the Friday and Saturday Night (please provide your own tent)

  • Transportation will be available to shuttle 1 x holdall and 1 x tent per person in the vehicles.

  • Hot or cold Breakfast on the Saturday and Sunday

  • Packed lunches for Saturday and Sunday (Please bring your own lunch for the Friday)

  • Hot evening meals on Friday and Saturday night.

  • Drinking Water, Teas, Coffee and biscuits

Please feel free to supplement your breakfast, lunch and evening meals with your own food. Please note that there will not be a refrigeration service to store fresh food.

The first night’s camping will be facilitated on a designated area chosen for its perfect location along the route offering an opportunity to enjoy some delicious hot cuisine whilst participating in some camping banter and enjoying the outdoor life around a good campfire. The second evening will be at a well-established campsite where wash & shower facilities are available
