The Doko Challenge South – 5km Challenge Run in Wimbledon London

June 12

5km Run Events London

The Gurkha Welfare Trust’s annual 5km Doko Challenge South returns another year.

This unique event sees participants running in the “Bravest of the Brave” footsteps. Based on a pivotal part of the Gurkha selection process, we challenge you to take on an undulating 5km cross-country course through Wimbledon Common with a weighted Nepali Doko basket strapped to your back. After last year’s sell-out event, places are sure to be in demand, and competition will be fierce!

You can choose a weight for your Doko basket of 5kg, 10kg or 15kg, and run, jog, or walk the route. Those looking to push themselves can aim to beat the Gurkha recruitment time of 46 minutes or even last year’s fastest time of 21 minutes 18 seconds!
