Royal Marines Commando Challenge 12 Oct – 13 Oct 2019 – View event Details

The Royal Marines Commando Challenge is all about teamwork. Working together to achieve something
special. It’s about showing Cheerfulness, Courage and Determination, as well as motivation, consideration
and care. Achieving that end goal together no matter what your ability.  Taking place across Woodbury Common,
near Exmouth, Devon, you will be taking on the real deal endurance training course, a course usually only
tackled by the Royal Marines trainees themselves. Do you have the grit and determination to take on our Challenge?

Over 1,000 entrants took part in the Royal Marines Commando Challenge in 2018, 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.”
