The event village will once again be open to supporters, families and friends of recruits taking part in the Royal Marines Commando Challenge.

While entrants scramble through either a 5k or 10k obstacle course, those providing moral support can enjoy live music, bungee trampolines and dog shows at Bicton Arena.

This year, the event village features a number of attractions including music from service personnel based at Hasler Naval Recovery Centre and a large-screen TV to keep an eye on those taking on the commando challenge on the weekend of October 12 and 13.

The event raises funds for two charities - RMA - The Royal Marines Charity and Devon Air Ambulance Trust.

Caroline Creer, a spokesman for the event, said: "We're really looking forward to the carnival atmosphere of the Event Village again this year."

Anyone wanting to take part in the challenge can go to the commando challenge website
