The Fan Dance is a gruelling 24km SAS Selection test march staged over Pen y Fan, the highest mountain in the Brecon Beacons.
The infamous march is the world’s oldest Special Forces test and is used as the first major indicator of whether a candidate has the physical and mental aptitude to complete the legendary Selection course. The AEE Fan Dance Race Series event is the original version with a provable and undeniable heritage. Founded, organised and managed by veteran SAS &SBS soldiers, our ethos is of integrity and the unrelenting pursuit of excellence. As per the real Special Forces Selection course, the Fan Dance event will be staged in both summer and winter.
There are two categories: load category (£51) or clean category (£40).
Load Bearing: Format of the Fan Dance in which participants must carry a Bergen/backpack that meets the stipulated weight requirements.
Clean Fatigue: Military term for parachuting without a load, be it weapon, equipment or other supplies. Typically carried out as a trainee parachutist or refresher training for qualified personnel. In the Fan Dance context, the term means to run with a modified and reduced equipment scale compared to the Load Bearing category.
