TWO Royal Marines are taking on a test of strength and endurance to mark the corp’s 350th birthday tomorrow.

Sergeant Rob Garthland and Corporal Kris Foster are taking on the strongman challenge at HMS Raleigh.

It will involve the pair flipping a tractor tyre 3,500 metres, a 3,500 metre run, row and swim, a rope climb of 350 metres and a Spartan 350, seven sets of 50 bodyweight exercises.

And to make things even more difficult the super-fit Royal Marine physical training instructors plan to complete all aspects of the challenge in one day.
