Commando Challenge

Radio Exe are proud to be supporting the Commando Challenge 2016.

It’s a fantastic way to support the Devon Air Ambulance Trust and the Royal Marines Charity and raise money for these wonderful causes.

You get to experience a faction of the mud and an glory of every Royal Marine Commando in a thrilling and safe way.

The Radio Exe Crew are on Board. Ashley Jeary, Ben Clark and other members of the Radio Exe Crew are already enlisted and you can make donation on our Just Giving page to show your support for them and the great charities involved in this event.


...So why not go Commando for two great causes?

The Royal Marines Commando Challenge takes place on Saturday 8th October with the 4k and 10k courses, and Sunday 9th October with more 10k and the 17k course.

The endurance course is 4k in length, with additional runs for the 10k and 17k courses. This year there are also new routes.

So if you, your friends, club, pub, or work colleagues (for example) are looking for a new challenge, then this is just the event for you!  Even better, you get to support two fantastic good causes; The Royal Marines Charity and Devon Air Ambulance.

This unique event gives you the opportunity to test your grit and determination across the Royal Marines’ own training endurance course on Woodbury Common near Exmouth.  In fact unless you are a Royal Marine or take part in this event, you won’t get the chance to do it!
