The SF Boot Camp

A boot camp with a difference, the SF Boot Camp offers the perfect blend of physical training and valuable life skills.

Day one will see you receive instruction on a range of areas including survival, weapon handling, map reading and hand to hand combat plus physical training sessions at the hands of our ex-Special Forces Directing Staff (DS). Culminating in the gruelling 10 mile race known as SF10 over the Clwydian range on Day Two.  Plus there’ll always be some hidden surprises at the hands of the DS.

If you want to push yourself to your limits and acquire life skills from former Special Forces instructors then SFBC is one you can’t afford to miss.

Hot Food is provided from lunchtime on Saturday onwards, along with overnight camping with wash and shower facilities at the venue.  Finishers of the whole weekend will receive exclusive SFBC dog tags and a custom finisher’s medal for the SF10 Race along with a completion certificate.  Please note: the content of each boot camp may vary but you will always receive an unforgettable experience.

Day 2: SF10 Race

A 10 mile route chosen to re-create the CFT (Combat Fitness Test).

The CFT is a test which all soldiers have to undertake once a year in their service as evidence they are fit and able enough to cover ground fully laden with all their kit required to eat, sleep and fight.

We have chosen this route across stunning countryside on the Clywdian Range in North Wales.

This is a very arduous undulating route which involves steep ascents and descents. It forms part of the Offa’s Dyke path. This particular section has been chosen by the DS for its terrain providing the perfect backdrop to the final stage of SFBC.

What’s Included

As well as the activity outlined above we provide:

  • Hot food – Saturday lunch, Saturday evening meal and Sunday breakfast
  • Hot and cold drinks available throughout the day
  • Overnight Camping facilities (you will be expected to bring your own tent and sleeping gear)
  • Wash and shower facilities at the site.

What Will I Receive?

  • Exclusive SFBC dog tags
  • Custom SFBC finishers medal
  • Special Forces Boot Camp certificate of completion
  • Free downloadable high resolution images
