TAB stands for Tactical Advance to Battle.
For those seeking an even tougher race: 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' boots. Competitors rucksacks will be weighed before and after the race, by race officials. The PARAS'10 TAB is open to individuals and teams of 4 (With the first 3 runners to count). As a guide the Paratroopers P Company Selection cut off time is 1 hr 50 minutes (you will be given up to 3hrs if needed).
The Route: A multi-terrain endurance event, the race will follow the same route as the 10 mile run. 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. NB. The route is not suitable for wheelchairs.
Medals & T-Shirts: Medals and T-Shirts will be awarded to all who finish the course.
