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 no matter what your ability.

Taking place across Woodbury Common, near Exmouth, Devon, you will be taking on the real deal endurance course, a course usually only tackled by Royal Marines trainees themselves.

The Royal Marines Commando Challenge has taken place on the Royal Marine Endurance Course for over 25 years. In this time, thousands have people have crawled, ran, swam and struggled through the mud and obstacles of the famous assault course, all in the name of the charity.Challenge

For the past three years, Devon Air Ambulance and The Royal Marines Charity have been the benefitting charities of the event which, over its 25-year+ history, has raised over £5million for good causes.

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 the recruits undertake the endurance training course, they will also be wearing a pack weighing approximately 32lbs, but we don’t make our entrants do that.”

This unique event is owned by and raising funds purely for Devon Air Ambulance and The Royal Marines Charity.  The sponsorship raised for this event really does help to improve and save lives.

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 four 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?

The Royal Marines Commando Challenge takes place next year on Saturday 13th & Sunday 14th October 2018.
