Commando Series, a 6km obstacle challenge will take place at Hever Castle in Kent on Saturday 14 November.

commando series

For the first time ever, Commando Series will allow all ages and abilities the opportunity to take on 15 gruelling obstacles over a wild terrain course. The endurance obstacle course is endorsed by, national charity partner, the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund.

Many of the obstacles are designed to be exact replicas of the training obstacles faced at the Royal Marines Commando Training Centre in Lympstone, Devon, including a 30m neck deep wading pool and the dreaded Sheep Dip (as seen on Channel 4’s “Commando School”).

The event is open to both adults and young recruits (children aged 8+)  with the hardcore event taking place in the morning and the family friendly event taking place in the afternoon.

Participants are allowed to decide how tough they want to be treated, with the series offering “just get me round”, “family friendly”, or “treat me like a commando” options at online race entry stage.

On arrival participants will enter the event village resembling a military encampment where they will change and ‘cam up’. ‘Recruits’ are then led into a holding pen for an old fashioned warm up conducted by legendry Motivator in Chief and ex-Royal Marines Physical Training Instructor, Bart, before getting official “orders’ to set off around the course.

Early bird tickets are priced at £55 for adults and £30 for children until the end of September. Tickets purchased from 1st October will be priced at £75 for adults and £40 for children.
