Sign up to beat Royal Marine on tough course

Have your say

A CALL has been made for recruits to sign up for a test of strength and stamina against a super-fit Royal Marine in a bid to raise thousands for the Help For Heroes charity.

Marc Bird, aged 28, above, recognised as one of the fittest commandos in the Armed Forces, is the man people have to beat in the Endurer Dash obstacle course that is to take place in Barlow on Saturday, September 22.

It will be followed by a log dash on the same course the following day.

Both events have been sponsored by Hi-Tec and Magnum footwear, with £1700 worth of prizes.

Prices start at £24 per person, per event. Register at
