Could you become Britains Fittest Woman?

To be crowned Britains Fittest Woman, you will need to complete one of the toughest challenges there is. One that tests both strength and endurance and most importantly recovery rates. Only an all round test over several different courses can get you this title.

The current title is held by Jacqui Macquisten. Jacqui is also a 4 times National Octathalon Cup Course Champion, but to win the title Britains Fittest Woman, she had to complete 4 different Octathalon Courses to get an overall combined time. The person with the fastest combined time at the end of the year is the winner of this title.

The Octathalon is an 8 exercise race where all 8 exercises have to be done in the right order and as fast as possible. The photos below are the 8 exercises being done by Jacqui. Each of the 4 Octathalon Courses have different weights, distances and repetitions. For more details check out the www.octathalon.com website or look at the courses in detail below.

To enter to win the title Britains Fittest Woman in 2011 you need to become a member of the www.octathalon.com website (£15.00pa) and put up verified times on the database for each of the above 4 courses. You have from January 1st to June 30th to get your fastest times and you can enter as many verified times as you like.

To decide who is the winner a weighting factor is applied to the time for each course.

For the Rock Octathalon you multiply your fastest time by 6.

For the Cup Octathalon you multiply your fastest time by 4

For the Ultra-Octathalon you multiply your fastest time by 2

The Ironman Octathalon time is the time used.

This balances out the different times it takes to do each of these courses.

All the new multiplied times are then added up and the person with the lowest time wins the title.

By checking the www.octathalon.com website in the challenge section you will be able to see who is in the lead and ahead in the rankings
