You are 21 miles in. Your feet are throbbing and your shoulders burning. Your brain is telling you to stop and rest but you know you must dig deep and carry on. Every Royal Marine has to have reserves of physical and mental strength to complete the Yomp, the 30 mile final test in their gruelling training to gain their green beret. Are you tough enough to Survive The Yomp and raise serious sums for Royal Marines in need?

Survive the Yomp

The Yomp is a legendary 30-mile trek across the stunning Scottish Highlands. It’s the walk that makes a Royal Marine Commando. It’s not for everyone.

Could you train with the best, share a unique experience and show your courage for those who risk their all? Could you survive The Yomp?

The entry fee is £165 (including VAT) per person and you'll be fundraising for the Appeal.

You'll receive a T-shirt, fundraising guide, training hints and tips and support. You'll get a pasta party and briefing the night before and a slap up meal and awards ceremony that you and your guests can attend once you cross the finish line!

Every day, Royal Marines Commandos show their courage and commitment and we’re looking for people who have that same determination and spirit to take part in a series of unique challenges. Sign up for our next challenge, Survive The Yomp, and you’ll train alongside your own Royal Marine buddy as you prepare to face a legendary test of stamina and mental strength.

The Yomp is no walk in the park. Set in the stunning Scottish Highlands around historic Achnacarry Castle, this is a 30-mile hike - you can even carry full kit, if you fancy it. The terrain is rugged and remote; they don’t call it ‘Commando Country’ for nothing.

  • Looking for the ultimate challenge of your abilities?
  • Excited about training with the best in the world?
  • Ready to rise to the challenge and help us achieve our fundraising goals?

We believe you’ve got what it takes to show your courage for those who risk their all.

“I am honoured to support Commando Spirit and Survive The Yomp, and as a former RM PTI I will be providing you with fitness advice during your training. I am very proud of my Royal Marine roots and believe that anyone who interacts, trains or competes with the Royal Marines benefits enormously from the experience and takes away their very own little bit of Commando Spirit.”

Sean Lerwill | Former Royal Marines Commando PTI and Commando Spirit Ambassador.
