Condition:

You must finish your run in the same location in which you started.

CHALLENGE DESCRIPTION

Not far from the centre of Dharan, over a hundred young men queue outside the British Gurkha Camp ready for their 5am start. Some had been waiting most of the night, desperate for the chance to serve a Queen and country thousands of miles away.

After the formal qualifications are taken care of, the recruits move to the first test in the regional selection process, the 800m sprint. The aim of this test is to complete the 800 meter course in the quickest possible time. Good luck!
