PARAS'10 Colchester 2018

The event is split into two categories:

Running Race

10 Mile Endurance Run: The Parachute Regiment challenges you to complete this gruelling running course in the fastest possible time. These are not PB courses nor suitable for spikes – trainers are advised.

10-Mile Tab:

TAB stands for Tactical Advance to Battle. The Parachute Regiment challenges you to attempt the 10 Mile ‘P’ Company Cross Country Route, carrying a bergen (rucksack) weighing 35lb (excluding food water) and wearing long trousers with ‘military style’ or hiking boots with ankle support. Competitors rucksacks will be weighed before and after the race, by race officials.

The Route:

A multi-terrain endurance event, the race is held over undulating military land. For security reasons, the route cannot be publicised or accessed prior to event day. There will be water stations located along the route and at the start and finish. The First Aid Station will be located at Race Control with a roving back up facility.

Medals and t-shirts:

PARAS’10 Medals and T-Shirts will be awarded to all who finish the course. Any ABF The Soldiers’ Charity supporters will also receive a goody bag on completion.


Registration opens at 8am, where you will collect your timing chip and race number. The race begins at 11am.
