This episode was recorded live at The Winter Fandance 2020 
The Standard fandance is a 24km Weighted March over the tallest peak in the Brecon Beacons, the same route used to test UK Special Forces. Additional events on the day are "Double tap" completing 2 Fandances back to back, Trident completing 3 including a night march and you can also attempt the Formidable "Woodhouse" Route.

The Fandance race is organised by Avalanche endurance events
