The Marines Challenge

Loch Ard, Kinlochard, Scotland

Organiser's Description

So, you’ve run a few marathons, cycled a few sportives, run a tough mudder, you want to try something harder, something that will challenge you not just physically but mentally as well. Now you’re ready for a new challenge……

This is adventure and endurance racing that replicates stages from the elite military forces around the World, a series of weekends designed to take and test you to your limits. The Marines Commando Course in Scotland, the Parachute Regiments P Company in South Wales, and U.S. Pararescue Selection in the North of England, will push you to the edge. From full kit marches, assault courses, swimming and running at Iron man standards, to Hell Night, you will encounter a whole new world of pain.

The Marines Challenge tests are taken on consecutive days and include, but are not limited to: a 9 mile speed march; a 6 mile endurance course across rough moorland and woodland terrain which includes tunnels, pipes, wading pools, and an underwater culvert; the Tarzan Assault Course which starts with a death slide and ends with a rope climb up a 30ft near-vertical wall; a 30mile march across moorland, wearing full fighting order. You'll need to be in the best condition of your life to make it through!
