Fan Dance Overview

The 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 (886m). The turn round point is at Torpantau where candidates will have to quickly turn round then return along the same route back up and over Pen y Fan via the very steep and brutal Jacob’s Ladder.

In August 2013 a small cadre of ex UK Special Forces (SF) soldiers organised a physical endurance event in the Brecon Beacons in remembrance of 3 men who had recently died while taking part in an SAS Selection course.


The event proved hugely popular amongst civilians, ex-military and serving military personnel, raising a significant amount of money for charity and bringing together a large number of like-minded outdoor orientated folk to challenge themselves by completing the infamous Special Forces Selection route named “The Fan Dance”.


“The S.F. Experience” was born…


Join the TSFE team to share our experiences from UKSF selection. Take yourself beyond what you perceive to be your limits, dust off your bergen and join the TSFE team as you are put through a series of events designed to give you a realistic snapshot of what is undeniably the toughest military course in the world – UKSF Selection.


TSFE events are designed to give each participant an experience unrivalled by any other.


The Loadstone and Endurance series encapsulate a true parallel of the ‘Fitness & Navigation’ phase of UKSF Selection. All events are directed by ex members of UKSF who have passed the gruelling UKSF Selection process and know exactly how to share that experience with you.


Join us and make history.
