If entering a Brutal10 isn’t quenching your thirst for mud, sweat and leg aching pain then why not join one of our training sessions?

Known for their evil streak when competing or designing a Brutal10 course, The Brutal Team invites you to join them for a quality training session. Warm up, drills, running, technique training and a little fun and then more running. Although it sounds terrible, even for accomplished runners, the Brutal Team will tailor the activities to suit all abilities. Newbie runners and special forces soldiers are all welcome.

Brutal Training (free)

Colin and Dave host free training sessions throughout the year, usually around 1hr long and use their army career PT experience to deliver a fantastic work out. Details are shown below.

Military Fitness 4U Training

We’ve partnered up with these guys who offer a similar training session on a regular basis. They charge for their time but it’s a regular work out with well trained PT instructors, most of whom are also ex-services.
