THE FAN DANCE

THE FAN DANCE

The “FAN DANCE” is famous as a 15-mile fitness test used by the military staged over Pen y Fan, the highest mountain in the Brecon Beacons.

Despite its military heritage, this is a lovely walk. From the Storey Arms centre, we will partake in a moderate climb to the summit of Pen Y Fan (2,907 ft, 886 m), the highest mountain in the Brecon Beacons National Park. We will then descend very steeply down “Jacob’s Ladder” to a farmer’s track (an old Roman road), which we follow gently downhill, past a reservoir, then through a forest to Torpantau (a heritage rail station on a minor road) on the far side of the mountain. We will then turn around and return back the way we came to the start!

We will be running this event in at least two groups – the hikers and the runners. For those of you who want to, you can test yourself against the military standard of completing the event in 4 hours 10 minutes with or without the required weights of 35lbs + your food and water for men, or 25lbs + your food and water for women.

This event is hosted by MUUK Adventures, the Welsh Mountain leaders who will make sure that we are safe and well looked after.

CINDY IMPEY

JJK retreat is about taking time for YOU. Training with the island’s sunrise as a backdrop, running on soft sands and in cool waters, is the perfect way to start the day. Resting by the pool, before and after a carefully balanced, nutritious meal between workouts, means that everyone is fully charged for the next activity. The hikes and walks are just one way to experience the incredible sunsets and amazing views of the island from the best and highest platforms. Paddleboarding or swimming within the island’s hidden coves opens up a new world of tranquillity and enchantment.

I can’t wait to come back next year!

JIM ATTENBOROUGH

It was so great to see a group of diverse individuals come together and get on so well, support each other and laugh so much. I enjoyed the trip so much and would love to go next time. I love to challenge myself and this was a big confidence boost. Anyone else who is thinking about going next time should definitely do it.

CASEY DOVE

I could easily count the JJK retreat  as one of the best holidays I’ve been on. Being able to eat well and keep fit, as well as having lots of fun can be tricky. It is the full package. Made lots of friends along the way, had a bunch of laughs and ate the best food. Hands down will be there next year!
