Well done Gurkha Doko Challengers 2021!

Well done to everyone who took part in the Gurkha Doko Challenge on Sunday (6 June).

Based on the traditional Gurkha Recruitment Doko race in Nepal, the challenge saw participants run 5km of difficult terrain, carrying a traditional Doko basket weighing either 5kg, 10kg or 15kg with a time to beat of 46 minutes.

The event was a huge success with 100% of participants finishing the course, the leader in an incredible 21:18. Whatever your time was, you deserve a Gurkha salute. Those baskets are not easy to carry no matter the weight and to trek/run/trudge 5km with one on your back is no small feat.
