Intent: This day is a hill fitness and navigation day and specifically can be used to build leg strength for Sabre 23. This area is very hilly. The route has plenty of short and long steep ascents and descents. You can go as light as you want or as heavy as you like based on your experience and fitness level. It will involve some light running but if you are concerned please ask, as this day is actually designed for all levels so we will have a work round.
Expectations: It can be easier for you if you want it to be part of your progressive training plan depending on what you have coming up or as harder for those wanting to test themselves with more weight.
Fitness Level: Can be used for basic with little or no weight or over weight up to 50lbs.
