SAT 26th NOV 2022 

MANDOWN 3 will see up to 80 ambitious candidates complete a series of Navy Seal, Royal Marine, and SAS-inspired tasks that will test them not only physically, but also mentally and emotionally. Carried out in the shadows of the Garth mountains after dark, MANDOWN 3 will plunge challengers into a world of sensory deprivation, empowering them to draw upon their own internal strength and personal attributes to complete the various themed stations.

Open to men and women who want to challenge themselves and see how mentally tough they really are. All based at the GREEN MILE TRAINING CAMP in the hills of Taffs Well, CARDIFF. 



MANDOWN is a mental resilience challenge for up to 80 candidates that will push each individual physically, mentally and emotionally. The event will take each candidate into a world of sensory deprivation, discomfort and emotional instability that will encourage out personal attributes they perhaps were not once aware of. 


Chris Flynn, Head Instructor and Co-Founder of The Green Mile Training Camp, says “With extra help from Covid and lockdowns we’ve all become accustomed to this very safe, very sanitised lifestyle. We don’t take risks, we don’t challenge ourselves, and many of us are feeling stale, unmotivated, and like we’re just going through the motions.


“That’s exactly why we’ve designed our MANDOWN event; to get us all stepping out of that comfort zone we’ve relied on for the last year, to put ourselves in unusual and challenging environments, and discover more about our strength, resilience, and ability to do what we never thought possible.”
