The Commando Challenge is a tough challenge that will test your endurance and strength and requires a high level of stamina to compete the course.
We designed this challenging event back in 2009 with the aim of testing endurance, stamina, fitness and cheerfulness under adversity! These are some of the qualities that all Royal Marine Commandos have to display at all times.
Why not challenge yourself and a team of colleagues with this exciting event which provides an excellent platform for both team building and/or charity fundraising.
