Are you looking for a unique event to take part in? Looking for something that will challenge you? Fancy doing something with a group of friends or work colleagues? Then we have just the event for you!
The Royal Marines Commando Challenge will take place again this year on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 October.
Jonathan Ball, on behalf of Royal Marines Commando Challenge said “It is a very rare opportunity for any civilian to get the chance to undertake the Royal Marines’ own endurance training course, across Woodbury Common, near Exmouth. It’s a unique way to get a small insight on what a Royal Marine goes through during their training. Of course when they undertake the endurance training course, they will also be wearing a pack weighing approximately 32lbs, but we don’t make our entrants do that.”
Heléna Holt added “This is also unique as it’s owned by and raising funds for Devon Air Ambulance and The Royal Marines Charity. We don’t know of any other event of its type like this. This is something we are also very proud of as it means that as much of the monies raised goes straight back into helping both of the charities do their essential work.”
Early bird prices are still available until early August, but places are filling up fast. If you want to take part make sure you enter without delay to avoid disappointment.
The charities are asking entrants to pledge to raise £50 per person in order to add their support.
