PARAS’10 – Catterick

Venue: North Yorkshire

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.

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. For more information, visit https://paras10.com/

The Roast Beef Club

We are delighted to have been chosen as The Roast Beef Club’s chosen charity again in 2019.

The Roast Beef Club was formed in 2008 when a group of friends came together to celebrate St George’s Day. Someone happened to have a cricket bat with a few signatures that they offered to auction and £500 was raised that day. This lunch, formed the basis of The Roast Beef Club’s fundraising events from then on.

Every year, to celebrate St George’s Day, The Roast Beef Club choose a military charity to support and the members come together to raise as much as possible for the charity of the year. In the last 10 years, they have raised over £1 million.

We are delighted to have been chosen by The Roast Beef Club to be the beneficiaries of their 2019 event and are looking forward to another great day.
