Do you have what it takes to be a Gurkha?

Gurkhas are famed for their fitness. Traditionally, this is developed from childhood in the Himalayan foothills where simply walking to school can be a two-hour trek.

During the Second World War, Gurkhas in Burma were known for their gruelling marches through thick, humid jungles, deep behing enemy lines.

In recognition of such extraordinary stamina and willingness to fight through pain, our fundraisers often test their resolve in challenges worthy of a Gurkha.
