On the 8 and 9 October this year The Royal Marines Charity and Devon Air Ambulance will be hosting the ultimate challenge as competitors are invited to take part in the Royal Marines Commando Challenge, a 4, 10 or 17K mud run and obstacle course using the Royal Marines Endurance Course on Woodbury Common.
The course, which is used daily for Royal Marines recruit and officer training, takes you across the rough moorland and woodland of Woodbury Common near Lympstone and features tunnels, pipes, wading pools and an underwater culvert called the sheep dip, one of the toughest obstacles of the lot that even the Royal Marines have nightmares about!
Charity Ambassador Henry Cavill, whose team will be joining him, is keen to try his hand at the Endurance Course and raise funds for the two charities.
“Being an Ambassador for The Royal Marines Charity, it is a privilege to be taking part in the 10k portion of this Commando Challenge! The event is being organised by both the Royal Marines Charity and the Devon Air Ambulance so taking part or donating means that you will be helping both of these honourable charities. Don’t forget there is a 4k version and the rather more challenging 17k! So no matter if you’re feeling casual or quite the opposite there will be something for you.”
Think you and your team have what it takes? Head to www.commandochallenge.co.uk to sign up today.
