More than 1,000 braved the Royal Marines’ own endurance training course, something usually reserved for the recruits to earn their coveted Green Beret.

Funds raised at the event will benefit the The Royal Marines Charity and Devon Air Ambulance Trust.

Next year’s event will take place on October 12 and 13, 2019. Online entries will be available soon.

Entrants tackled a 5k or 10k course, tackled underwater and muddy obstacles; the submersed sheep dip, tunnels, mud and a stream wades.

Caroline Creer, Royal Marines Commando Challenge spokeswoman, said: “We were probably one of the few events taking place over that 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.”
