Event description

Description

Take on the Fully Loaded 10k run. A 10 kilometer backpack run around the cross country area of Smestow Valley Nature Reserve, carrying either 12 or 16kg. Participants must provide their own bag and weights. Bags will be weighed before and after the run, by the race officials. Water and food is not considered as part of the official bag weight.

There will be T-SHIRT price for first place male and female in both weight categories.

The route is set around the Smestow Valley Nature Reserve. Although the route is fairly flat, it does cover a multitude of different terrains. Long trousers and hiking boots are advised. A First Aid station will be located at the start/finish line of the race, you are advised to carry any essential first aid supplies such as plasters, small bandages etc. The route will be kept secret till the last week of the event, details will be realised 7 days before the run starts.


Take your running to the next level by adding some weight on your back. This will test your willpower and determination and with that in mind I have designed a 10 week workout programme that introduces weighted cardio workouts, plus workouts to help develop muscular endurance, which is essential to complete load bearing runs. There is added bonus section on how to pack a backpack correctly for comfort and more importance safety.


Simply request you very own copy via GetOutFitness facebook page, using facebook messenger.


Enter fees will be £10 per person (plus small booking fees). Unfortunately, payments are non refundable


Registration opens at 8am and closes at 8:30am. the Run starts at 9am.

Unfortunately there are no public toilets, but there is a local coffee shop that opens at 10am. It’s a great place to meet after the run and share experiences. All participants must be 16 years of age or older.
