Popular Event
The Ultimate 10 Mile Endurance Race for Charity. Civilians and the military come together to form teams but will leave as brothers. A great test of physical and mental strength but as Thomas Paine once said 'The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.'

The original PARAS'10 race, now firmly established as one of the UK's "must do" endurance challenges. Located at Catterick Garrison in North Yorkshire. This event is open to civilians and military and is also a charity event.

Founded by WO1 JJ Wilson PARA The PARA'S 10, was hosted by The Parachute Regiment in Aldershot 1982 - 1993. Since the Paras left Aldershot in 1993, this legendary event was dormant until it was revived by Major Sam McGrath in 2008, the event is now run by Pegasus Company, The Parachute Regiment's own training and selection wing. Now in its 12th year at Catterick the PARAS' 10 is well established as one of the UK's "must do" endurance challenges as indicated below by the fact over 15,000 runners and tabbers have attempted it over this period.

Kit List

Do the Race Organisers Provide Bergens/Rucksacks?
No. All ‘P’ Company Challenge and Team Challenge competitors are to bring their own rucksack, packed with 35lbs of equipment (excluding food & water), which will be weighed both at the start and finish by race officials.

Are there any specific regulations regarding bergan size/shape, is there any advice on making the bergen comfortable?
From race rules perspective Bergen size & shape is irrelevant, but weight must be 35 lbs. Weight can be made up of anything, though I recommend it being wrapped in something soft like a sleeping bag. Comfort is something that you won't be able to achieve, but padded shoulder straps and a lumbar support are your best bets to try and achieve it.

Are there any specific regulations regarding boots worn for the P Company TAB element of the Paras 10?
Put simply boots must have full ankle support; sturdy hiking boots are fine.

PARAS'10 TAB: To enter the PARAS'10 TAB, entrants require a bergen (rucksack) weighing 35lbs (16 Kg), long trousers (not tights) and a pair of military or hiking type boots with ankle support.

Boots: Boots must be worn in the PARAS'10 TAB, not trainers. With the added bergen weight you need the stability that they give. Boots should be worn in prior to the race and must have ankle support; military boots or hiking boots are ideal.

Bergens: For training, start with less weight and build up to 35lbs. Weight can be made up using bags of sand or metal weights and should be wrapped in something soft like a sleeping bag to cushion your back. Keep the weight high and close to your back.

    Did the 10 mile TAB (min age 16) in 2019

    A brilliant day, very well organised, the military were brilliant including the parachute display team. Volunteers and the veterans at the end was a brilliant touch. A gruelling course which would challenge even the most seasoned athlete.

    Did the 10 mile TAB (min age 16) in 2019

    First time running Paras 10, won't be the last! Gruelling course; the third hill in particular feels like a vertical climb after 8 miles and the water pit! but so satisfying to get to the top of the hill, you can hear the spectators cheering as you're on the way in. A brilliant event and will definitely do it again.
