QOGLR’s Alpine Ski Team deployed to Serre Chavalier, France, on 12th January to conduct full race training prior to the Divisional Championships, Exercise SPARTAN HIKE 2017. The competition was held over an arduous and challenging course which was both physically and mentally demanding for the competitors.
Exercise SPARTAN HIKE hosts a wide range of Competitors from the Army, from those that train almost right through the year to complete novices. Competitors take on events such as the slalom, the grand slalom and the super G in a bid to qualify for the Army Championships.
Exercise SPARTAN HIKE has provided excellent training, competition and preperation for the QOGLR team in anticipation of their next event – the Royal Logistic Corps Championships, held in Ruhpolding in March.
