Jason ‘Foxy’ Fox, of Who Dares Wins fame, who as an SAS Commando tackled the Taliban and fought in Afghanistan, will on Saturday, April 21, be at Orcombe Point, Exmouth, supporting the Re-Org Commando Beach Assault, in aid of the Royal Marines Charity, and Exmouth-based military mental health organisation Rock 2 Recovery, which the TV star co-founded with former Royal Marine sniper, Jamie Sanderson.

The challenge has been organised by Royal Marines physical training instructor, Corporal Tom Merriman from Exmouth; the event will feature up to 30 mixed teams of four who will battle it out over a series of three fitness challenges.

Former SAS Commando Jason Fox, who is one of four leaders on the hit television series, will be cheering on all taking part in the beach challenge.

Jason, who will be in Exmouth just days after finishing trekking to the North Pole as part of the Borne Arctic Challenge, said: “Physical fitness and challenging yourself physically can really help in the journey to achieving mental fitness; often, getting through challenges is as much about mental fortitude as it is about physical strength.

“This event is about raising awareness of this important symbiotic relationship, as much as it is about having a great day on the beach.”

The beach challenges have been inspired by Royal Marine training exercises and cross-fit workouts; they include team work and leadership. The top 10 teams will go on to battle it out in a final challenge.

Jason said: “Physical fitness and challenging yourself physically can really help in the journey to achieving mental fitness.

Registration is from 11am. The event starts at 12noon. Entry is £126 per team including a booking fee.
