Royal Marines Charity Bootcamp Challenge
This Royal Marines Charity PRMC (Potential Royal Marines Course) Challenge is open to anyone, from any walk of life, over 18 years of age. Whether you are doing this Challenge for fun, for team building, or as a heads up for the real deal, all money raised is going to the Royal Marines Charity and the event is being manned BY Royal Marines FOR Royal Marines.
The Challenge will give you an indication of what to expect if you were to attend a PRMC. It is being run by Royal Marines PTIs and it will give you a taste of the Course, without the pressure. And if you are considering a career in the military, you will be able to gauge your current fitness level.
You will go head to head over 5 stations which follow the training and ethos of the Royal Marines. We won't kill you - it is just a bit of fun! You can enter as a team, or if you're desperate to have a go but can't get anyone to join you, then don't worry ..... sign up individually and we will make up teams on the day.
