Founded by WO1 JJ Wilson The PARAS’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 in Catterick, N.Yorkshire.
Due to its success in Catterick the race was taken to the home of 16 Air Assault Brigade in Colchester in 2012 and was revived in Aldershot in 2013. It is regarded as The Ultimate 10 Mile Endurance Race and is managed by the charity SUPPORT OUR PARAS and serving soldiers of the Parachute Regiment. The primary aim of raising funds for SUPPORT OUR PARAS whilst providing a challenging and enjoyable event remains key to the events success.
Each event can be competed as a run or carrying 35lbs over 10 miles of undulating military land. Teams of 4 (3 to count) can compete for the Team prize in each race.
