PARAS’10 – Colchester

Venue: Colchester

In its 7th year, the event is a testing 10 mile route on the local training area, watch out for the obstacles/stream crossing.

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. It is regarded as The Ultimate 10 Mile Endurance Race. For more information, visit
