Royal Marines Commando Challenge
Saturday 14th October, 2017 until Sunday 15th October, 2017
Woodbury Common & RM Endurance Course
The Commando Challenge has taken place on the Royal Marines Endurance Course on Woodbury Common for the past 25 years, in this time thousands of people have crawled, ran, swam and struggled through the mud and obstacles of the famous assault course, all in the name of charity.
For the past four years Devon Air Ambulance Trust and The Royal Marines Charity have been the benefiting charities of the event which, over its 25-year history, has raised over £5million.
Royal Marines recruit training is one of the longest training programmes of any combat troops, the full phase of this training takes place at the Commando Training Centre in Lympstone Devon. This intense phase of training ends with a series of tests, which are famous the world over and known as The Commando Tests.
The Endurance Course, the first of the tests, takes you across the rough moorland and woodland of Woodbury Common near Lympstone in Devon, which includes tunnels, pipes, wading pools and an underwater culvert.
Do you have the grit and determination to take on the Royal Marine's own training endurance course?
