Over a thousand take on the Royal Marines Commando Challenge 2018
Posted on October 19th 2018 by Sarah Burden
Owned, organised and fundraising for The Royal Marines Charity and Devon Air Ambulance
Over 1,000 entrants took part in the Royal Marines Commando Challenge last weekend, to raise funds for Devon Air Ambulance and The Royal Marines Charity.
Completing the Royal Marines’ own endurance training course, something usually reserved for the Royal Marines’ recruits, to earn their coveted Green Beret, led the entrants around a 5k or 10k course, experiencing the infamous obstacles such as the submersed Sheep Dip, as well as different tunnels, with gravel, mud and a stream wade.
Caroline Creer, speaking on behalf of the Royal Marines Commando Challenge said, “We were probably one of the few events taking place over the weekend that weren’t too worried about the weather, as it just made the mud muddier!”
She added “Although we are unable to say at the moment how much was raised, it was a record year, not only for entrants, but for those who were raising funds to support our two charities. Thank you to everyone who took part.”
Next year’s event will take place on 12 and 13 October 2019 and online entries will be available soon! You can register your interest now here.
