Activity & Challenges - Physical Levels and Technical Difficulty

All of our outdoor activities, challenges and events have some level of physical and technical input.  To make it it clear of what this looks like we have created a two tiered system showing how physical each activity or challenge is and also how technical it may be.  For the physical element we are using a scale of 1 to 5 with 1 being the easiest and for the technical element we are using a scale of A - C with A being the easiest.  Below you will find a description in greater detail outlining each of these levels.

Physical Scale

Level 1 - Basic level of fitness meaning you can walk, jog, swim or bike for example for up to an hour or so with rests.

Level 2 - Medium level of fitness meaning you exercise at least a few times a week in a variety of disciplines. 1-2 hour sessions.

Level 3 - Good level of fitness meaning you take regular exercise involving  cardio, strengthening and stretching over longer periods.

Level 4 - High level of fitness meaning you are well conditioned and perform well with good recovery times. Supple and flexible.

Level 5 - A very high level of fitness. Same as Level 4 but you can push yourself over longer periods - up to 12 hours with determination.

Technical Scale

This scale is about the complexity of the skills required and also about the difficulty of the environment to travel through.

Level A - Easy 

Level B - Medium 

Level C - Hard
