Commando Challenge Weekend Is Here, Go Henry!
The day has arrived.
Today Henry will be joined by hundreds of runners participating in the 10K portion of the Commando Challenge at Devon's Woodbury Common. The weekend event will also feature a 4K and a 17K run, all to raise funds for The Royal Marines Charity and the Devon Air Ambulance Trust.
We are in Devon to hopefully bring you real time updates (if the signal holds) from Bicton Arena, where we'll be cheering for Henry and the rest of the contestants. So make sure to follow us on our social media for the very latest. Look for a complete wrap on the blog including our interview with Henry, a little later.
You've got this Superman!

Good Luck ;)ReplyDelete
I'm curious to know: if you bring an American device to the UK, will it still work? (I only asked because of the mention of "signal").ReplyDelete
It depends on what 'device' you're bringing. Hair dryers, fridge freezers, powers tools etc probably not due to the the voltage (US = 120V, UK = 240V), Watts the product draws (this is different for each product) and the the frequency (US = 60 Hz, UK = 50 Hz) being different over here. However, lap tops, phones etc will be fine just remember to bring an adapter for the plug for the power cord- UK 3 prongs versus US 2 prongs. As for the comment about the signal, I think this pertains to the Commando Challenge is in a very rural area and the wifi/phone might not be that strong. But this would be true of any country in the middle of no where.Delete
wifi/phone *signal* might not be that strong.Delete
Oh alright. Thanks for that insight. I've never been out of the UK. In case I travel, I wanted to know if my own device aka Phone/laptop would work in other countries, for calling as well.Delete
They'll be fine. Just take an adapter.Delete
Thanks so much HCN for the twitter updates, been keeping up with them whilst at work. You're the vest! Hope everyone had/is having/has a blast at the Commando Challenge this weekend! Mr Cavill looks well as always. xxReplyDelete
Great job, Henry, Duncan, RM & All who ran!!! Love the video clips & pics...& the ones splashing in the mud, with Kal, kids & fans. Really proud of SuperCav-El & all the support shown for the RMCTF. Thanks so much for sharing, everyone & HCN (y) :) <3ReplyDelete
I have too agree great job thumbs upDelete
How awesome is Henry?! Thank you for all your coverage of todays event HCN it is very much appreciated :-)ReplyDelete
Congratulations to all who particpated in the challenge it looks like it was tough yet amusing and rewarding course which has actually inspired me to maybe take part in a similar event, who knows if i'll actually go through with it though haha.
All who were involved this weekend should feel very proud of themselves - the runners, volunteers, staff and of course the fundraisers and donaters in which this weekend would never have been possible. You've all raised incredible sums of money and awareness for the Royal Marines Charity and the Devon Air Ambulance Trust so pat yourselves on the back!! <3 Well done <3
P.S. Will you be covering tomorrow's races too or are you headed home?
HCN will still be there bringing you the latest.Delete
Was Duncan Falkoner in any of the pictures and was he on Henry's team at this event?ReplyDelete
