17k (ENDURANCE) Commando Challenge - 7th September 2014
Need an event that is more suitable to your fitness levels and is both FUN
and DIRTY - then try the 4k FUN or 10k MARINE
THE 17K ENDURANCE COMMANDO CHALLENGE.......is one of
........the few true military training courses used by civilians in the UK....so if you want to take on this 'Marines' formal training course enter today for the once-a-year Royal Marines Commando Challenge team charity event. Of course, the only other way to test yourself on this ENDURANCE course is to join the Royal Marines........
The Organiser of the Commando Challenge series of events was himself a Royal Marine and like all his colleagues serving and former had to 'pass' the Endurance Course physical test to qualify for the green beret. What you have to ask yourself is “Have you got what it takes to follow in the footsteps of the best military men in the world, to crawl through tunnels and tackle the famous "Sheep Dip"? And this time for charity?”
To seriously take on this challenge you will need Grit, Determination and Sense of Humour - and the ability to raise funds for our chosen charities - the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund (which directly helps our Royal Marines) and the Devon Air Ambulance Trust - which is not here just for the people of Devon but the tens of thousands of visitors who come to our beautiful county each year.
If you are up for it then all you have to do is click the Green REGISTER NOW button and crack on with your registration. You are guaranteed the experience that not many other charity events can offer as you are treading in the footsteps of many thousands of Royal Marines who have gone before you - in the knowledge that the course you are running is still used today by the Royal Marines from the nearby Commando Training Centre. This is no ordinary muddy course as so many others are – you can virtually FEEL the tradition that is here and has gone before.
WHY DO WE NEED TO FUNDRAISE (a must at this event)?
This event is a pure fundraising opportunity not only for Royal Marines charities, but also the Devon Air Ambulance Trust who both undertake invaluable work and need the financial support we can all give - and whilst we have a great time in the process
