What to wear
The turf at Rosslyn Park is 3G artificial grass - this means no dirt, no holes, no mud. In terms of footwear you can wear normal trainers, football/rugby boots with studs, lifting shoes etc. Whatever you feel comfortable in to lift, push, run and climb. You can change shoes in between stations although this isn't advisible as the clock won't stop. For clothing, we recommend a comfortable tee or tank, sports bra for the girls and shorts/leggings.
We will be providing a bag/cloak room where you can leave your bag. We assume most of you will keep you bag with you given the transition between workouts and chilling out in the village. While you are competing there will be a spot in each arena to leave your bag as well
