A question we get asked a lot is where does the Name HR4K come from.
HR4 is the original postcode of our home and humble garage where it all started back in Hereford in 2016. We were serving in the SAS at the time, with only a few years left of a full military career and looking for something to transition to when the time finally came.
Tier 1 special forces selection
As well as representing our geographical origins, HR4K also hints at our military careers as an anagram of 4K Hr. 4 km an hour is the speed at which a Tier 1 Special Forces candidate must march with weight across the Brecon Beacons mountains. Achieving this average speed, pitching against time, climate, and the grueling terrain, the candidate would be allowed to continue on Special Forces Selection Course.
