Thank you to everyone who made Mission:Unbreakable 2019 such an unforgettable day. Your efforts will make a real difference to local people. You've helped those who are facing the end of their life to do so with care and warmth wrapped around them, and with support for their loved ones guaranteed into the future.
Enjoy the photos (see here) and video (see above) from the day as a reminder of what incredible efforts you went to, in order to support local people in their time of need. Huge thanks go to the volunteer photography and video crew for capturing the magic of the event. They are: Martin Pailthorpe, Wayne U'Chong, Sue James, Karolina Andreasova, Becky Payne and Simon Ellery.
Watch this space for the launch of the 2020 Mission:Unbreakable event. The 2019 edition sold out in record time, so be sure to snap your place up straight away.
A commando-style course filled with real challenges. You will be tested by mud, fire, water, ice and a range of assault course obstacles you'll need to conquer in order to call yourself an 'Unbreakable.' This year we are pleased to add a host of BRAND NEW OBSTACLES to the course, including the fearsome Travelator, which will be the final test for your weary legs before crossing the finish line.
Mission:Unbreakable redefines the traditional 'mud run' obstacle course. That's because the course has been designed with the help of Commandos from 24 Engineer Regiment, based at RMB Chivenor, who will also be spread around the course providing plenty of encouragement. Check out the film from the 2018 event for a flavour of what's in store...

Mission:Unbreakable would not be possible to stage without our fantastic sponsors. Thank you to all who are supporting the event this year, helping to make it the best ever and raise as much as possible for North Devon Hospice.
This is not a timed event or a race. This is about surviving the toughness of the course together, helping each other out, and enjoying this unique opportunity to take on such a challenge. There will be obstacles which you can't conquer alone, so stick with others to make sure you get a helping hand when you need it, and make sure you offer the same encouragement to fellow competitors.
Mission:Unbreakable is a sponsored event, and the funds you raise will help North Devon Hospice care for local people who are facing a life-limiting illness such as cancer. With your help, we aim to raise £80,000 together, to fund two nurses on our bedded unit. Those being cared for on our bedded unit have the most severe symptoms, and our nurses help to alleviate pain and increase comfort levels. As a local charity, we can only do this thanks to your support through sponsored events like this.
Mission:Unbreakable 2019 sold out in record time. Therefore, we recommend registering as soon as possible to secure your place. Don't leave it to chance and miss out, like so many did in 2019.
T-shirt sales will not be available on the day, they were only available to purchase when completing your registration. This is the must-have memento, and proof that you have tackled one of the toughest challenges out there! We'll have a brand new design for this year, which we will be excited to release soon.
Mission:Unbreakable is a sponsored event, where all funds raised by those taking part go to North Devon Hospice. There is a suggested minimum target of £50 per competitor, which will be a breeze when we've sent you all the helpful hints and tips you'll need to smash through your target. There are three easy ways to raise money:

Check out some of the obstacles awaiting you. This isn't the full list, it's just to give you a taster of what's in store! Don't forget, none of these will be compulsory, but we're sure you will want to push yourself and tackle everything put in your way...
| COMMANDO WARM UP
Get the blood pumping and prepare your body for the immense task that lies ahead. The warm up will be led by Commandos from RMB Chivenor, who will put you through your paces!
| MINEFIELD HOP
A leg-draining minefield of tyres for you to hop through
| RIVER RUSH
This is a wade through waist-deep water. It'll be cold, it'll be slippery and you will be running up stream!
| TUNNEL TROUBLE
Crawling through a low tunnel, against the tide of a river coming in the other direction!
| MUD CRAWL MADNESS
The autumn rain (plus a farmer's tractor!) will have made this stretch of bog especially thick and muddy. Your job is to crawl through it, underneath the barbed wire of course!
| BALE OUT
4 stories of hay bales, towering into the sky, ready for you to drag your aching limbs over. A test for your weary legs.
| UNDER & OVER
Simple. Haul your body over the high logs, then drop and roll under the low ones.
| HANG TOUGH
When your hands are cold and your arms are sore, you'll be asked to engage your upper body strength and shimmy across our monkey bars. Watch out for the muddy landing below!
| HAY HURDLES
These hurdles come thick and fast. And at 4ft high, there is no way you'll be able to clean jump over these hay bales. They just keep coming and coming.
Just in case you get too cold, we thought you might like to run through some fire to warm up! Aren't we nice!
| ASSAULT SLIDE
A 40m plunge down a steep field will wake you up if you're feeling lethargic!
| MARSH MUDDER
A trek through the knee-deep marsh land. A true energy-sapper when you least need it. Whatever you do, don't lose your shoe!
| LOG LOADER
Like Atlas, you must carry the weight of the world (or at least a huge log) on your shoulders. Carry it the required distance before you can continue, you might want teammates to help you!
| SHEEP DIP (OPTIONAL)
Face your fear and pass through our underwater tunnel. Take a deep breath and trust the Commandos to pull you through the other side.
| EARN YOUR STRIPES
A true test of mettle. Scramble to the top of a steep 100-metre slope where a Commando will be waiting to give you one stripe of face paint. Repeat three times to earn your full three stripes and continue the course.
| COMMANDO JUMP
A true leap of faith. Like your parachuting military guides for the day, you'll need to jump from our platform, aiming for the safety of the crash mat below. Listen as they teach you to drop and roll to absorb the impact.
| RANGER CLIMB
With every rung of this wall of netting, you will feel like you are taking one step forward and one step back. Don't lose your footing and remember to keep using your leg muscles.
| RING THE BELL
Ringing a bell is easy. It just so happens that our bell is located at the top of a rope that you will have to climb.
| FREEZING PRIVATE RYAN
They say that an ice bath helps muscle recovery. So the final challenge will be to wade through chest-high water and ice. It's for your own benefit, believe us!
