Based on the traditional Gurkha recruitment race, 20 permanent staff took part in the early morning challenge that involved teams of five carrying a 20 kg traditional woven Nepalese basket over a distance of five kilometres with a target time of under one hour.

Event organiser Cpl Dikendra Gurung (RLC) decided to replicate the tests that aspiring young Gurkhas face in Nepal in order to raise money for the NHS.
