Think you’ve got what it takes to survive SAS selection

Last updated: 19-Jul-18

Channel 4 are looking for a group of ordinary men to take part in the second series of ‘SAS: Who Dares Wins’ and undergo the most psychologically demanding and physically challenging endurance mission of their lives – the jungle selection phase.

As with the first series, the course is designed and run by ex Special forces soldiers and based on their experience of the Special Forces selection process.

This is the closest you will ever get to experiencing selection for real.

Minnow Films are looking for 30 men, who are willing to travel abroad to the jungle for up to two weeks in early summer 2016 and undergo ten intense days of grueling psychological and physical tests, which are designed to play on the mental weaknesses that come to the surface when people are pushed to the edge. Will anyone have what it takes to succeed?

  • Do you possess unwavering self-discipline?
  • Can you keep calm under immense amounts of pressure?
  • Are you at peak physical and mental fitness?

Visit SAS 2 Who dares win to download the application form and for further information on the show and the application rules.

Please note that due to the very high number of applicants for this series, unfortunately Minnow Films will not be able to respond to everyone who applies. Minnow Films will process your personal data and sensitive personal data in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.  

Important Note: RunUltra is not in any way involved in the production of this series and does not take any responsibility for this event, please direct all your queries to Minnow Films at: [email protected].
