Can You Train Like A Ranger?
Wildlife rangers are required to stay at the top of their physical and mental game. Their vital work takes them into challenging environments and conditions. 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 will be participating in a targeted training programme, designed to improve and test their physical fitness.
Why not see how you match up? Take on the Wildlife Ranger Situp Challenge to test your limits!
