Northern Fitness and Navigation Day

Intent: This day is covers all aspects of navigation, and it offers the opportunity to build on your fitness. The day will be broken down into two categories so that some have the opportunity to do less mileage. Carry of all essential equipment but weight is as you see fit based on your current fitness level. This will be an easy to moderate day, mostly walking with some light running now and then.

Expectations: It can be easier for you if you want it to be part of your progressive week and program or dependant on where you’re at with EOF RTG. Some of you might still be tired from Paras 10 so can come lighter to stretch the legs out.

Fitness Level: 15-35lbs (includes food and water)and as long as you can walk for a duration of 4-5 hours then thats fine

Joining instructions: These are the joining instructions yet there will be a WhatsApp group, so if you are not an EOF member (become one) WhatsApp Nick on 07855468103 so we can add you.  You will need some equipment to include:
