What's it all about?

  • The Royal Marines from their nearby Commando Training Centre still use this world famous Endurance training course on Woodbury Common near Exeter to train new recruits - and once a year in October they uniquely allow members of the public to find out first hand just what its like to take on such obstacles as "Peter's Pool", "The Sheep Dip" and the "Crocodile Pit" - whilst at the same time raising funds for our charities.   Why not see some of the 100's of photos in our Facebook page or play the clip on our Home page. 
  • So - if you have GRIT and DETERMINATION and a terrific sense of humour and want to take on this famous training course then this is the charity event for you - and dont forget that 'getting down and dirty' is par for the course?
