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?
