Entries open for Commando Challenge

If you have ever fancied your chances at tackling the Royal Marine endurance course on Woodbury Common, now’s your chance as entries are being taken for the Commando Challenge.

Daredevils with grit, determination and a sense of humour are invited to take part in this year’s Commando Challenge.

The Woodbury Common 17k challenge is being held over the weekend of Saturday May 15 and Sunday May 15.

Those taking part will have the chance to tackle the Royal Marines endurance course of underground tunnels and black bogs, while raising funds for the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund (RMCTF).

Alan Hardy, event organiser and former Royal Marine, said: “All of us need to do what we can to support our troops – and this event is particularly close to my own heart as a third generation Royal within my family.
