About this event

THE FAN DANCE SAS SELECTION TEST

THE ORIGINAL FAN DANCE IS A 24KM ROUTE MARCH IN THE BRECON BEACONS WHICH IS THE INFAMOUS SAS SELECTION TEST

It is now over 50 years old and still, today forms the first major hurdle on Selection and an indicator as to whether a potential UKSF soldier has the physical and mental determination to complete it within the cut off time set by the (D.S Directing Staff).

The challenge begins as soon as the race does with an immediate ascent of Pen y Fan which is 2.907 feet (886 m). The route then descends on the other side of the peak with a pathed route to the halfway point before turning around and reversing the route. The return leg provides an even tougher challenge with the evil ascent back up the Fan known as Jacob's Ladder.

Once you have completed you will recieve a custom TSFE Fan Dance Medal & certificate and first place prizes are given for each category for both male and femalse participants and team entries.

We also offer different variations over one weekend from doing the Fan Dance once to doing it twice over the two days in our Gemini version of the infamous and toughest event. For The Fan Dance Trinity, you will complete the Full Fan Dance on both days as well as the Dark Trail event on the Saturday night. Under the cover of darkness this 21km route will give you a different perspective of Pen y Fan and its surroundings. Can you make it back before dawn?

Alternatively you can choose to complete one Fan Dance and the Dark Trail to complete the Eclipse event.
