Wildlife Ranger Pushup Challenge

Wildlife Ranger Pushup Challenge

Can You Train Like A Ranger?

Wildlife rangers can spend up to 18 hours a day outside in challenging terrain, traversing vast and varied landscapes. For their safety and wellbeing rangers train to keep in peak physical shape.

To prepare for the Wildlife Ranger Challenge 21km race on 16th September 2023, our ranger teams participated in a series of mini challenges, designed to improve and test their physical fitness.
