About

The Team
All volunteers who have dedicated much of their personal time to train and compete with the ultimate aim of raising awareness of the 'Support our Paras' charity and raising funds through personal challenge in arduous and testing conditions.

Ethos
The soldiers of the Regiment pride themselves on beingĀ ready for anything. Organised challenge events provide a focal point for continued training and personal development while raising the profile of the Regiment. Teamwork andĀ  fostered sense of camaraderie is often the deciding factor - these men have it in spades.

Fund Raising
'Support our Paras' has a long established history of supporting the Regiment. This is an opportunity for a small band of determined men to expend themselves in a worthy cause, raising funds for a charity that has always been there when called upon for support.

Event details

2 PARA Endurance Triathlon

Commando Speed March
2 March 2019
An historic event dating back to 1940 - commando hopefuls would be dropped at the Spean Bridge rail station. They would immediately be outfitted with battle order before being instructed to conduct a 7 mile speed march to the camp. Those failing to arrive within an hour would be met with closed gates and instructions to return to their parent unit.

The PARAS 10
18 May 2019
The ultimate 10-mile endurance race, based on the P Company test week event. Often seen as the 'bread and butter' of the Regiment, tabbing is a test of strength, robustness and stamina. Rooted in the actions of WW2, the test is essential for all Paratroopers in order to prove that they can be relied upon to drop in by air and move to an assembly before delivering orchestrated violence.

The Fan Dance
June 2019
One of the most demanding medium distance endurance events; arguably one of the most challenging tests that exists in within the Armed Forces. Candidates are required to cover 24Km in the Brecon Beacons, summiting the Pen y Fan twice in short order. This will be the finale that sees the completion of the 2 PARA Triathlon.
