We have just heard about a new exciting team challenge in the Brecon Beacons - and we thought it might be perfect for some of you. 

The GORE-TEX® Experience Tour returns for its third year – now with a new September adventure, The Fan Dance.

Ten walkers will be set the mission of completing the testing Fan Dance as a team in less than four hours. The 23.5K trail runs through the Brecon Beacons reaching a maximum elevation of 886m at the peak of Pen y Fan. The route has some pedigree – it’s used as a fitness and navigation test by the British Military.

Before you start the challenge you’ll spend a weekend honing your navigation, survival skills, pacing techniques and lightweight packing skills. All of which should also come in handy for your next adventure.

If you’re an extreme challenge enthusiast, or if you’re keen to push your boundaries, apply here. Entries close on June 15.
