A challenge to push beyond your limtis...
TSFE's Trinity will see you complete two Fan Dances and Fan Dance Dark Trail in the same weekend. These three events back to back will test your endurance and your stamina as you battle through fatigue.
The Original Fan Dance is a 24km route march in the Brecon Beacons which is infamous within the ranks of all UKSF soldiers. It is now over 50 years old and still today forms the first major hurdle on Selection and is a major indicator of whether a potential UKSF soldier has the physical and mental determination to complete it within the cut off time set by the D.S (Directing Staff). The route starts and finishes at The Storey Arms Outdoor Education Centre and ascends Pen y Fan which is 2,907 feet (886 m…). The turn round point is at Torpantau where candidates will have to quickly turn round then return using the same route back up and over Pen y Fan via a very steep path known as Jacobs Ladder.
Dark Trail is your opportunity to take on an arduous challenge in the dark. This event will give you a whole new take on the Brecon Beacons and Pen y Fan. Test your limits and your senses when you scale some of the highest peaks in South Wales and proceed to undertake a tough physical challenge under the cover of darkness. Will you make it back before dawn?
Further information on this event will be released to registrants only.
