The Fan Dance Exercise High Moon is the UK's very first and only Special Forces Selection orientated Load Bearing night march and trail run. This unique challenge provides an experience far removed from any other; staged across a dramatic, hair-raising and truly spectacular mountain route set in true SAS Selection heartland of the Brecon Beacons, Fan Dance High Moon provides two very different tests of endurance and true grit with both a summer and winter edition.
The backbone of the High Moon route will follow the Fan Dance trail and general format, but with numerous route deviations that take on some of SAS Selection's most legendary and iconic features. The one constant is to expect and anticipate a very long and demanding night in the high hills whatever the weather
