About First In Events

First In Events run a series of military themed adventures that will push you to your limits and beyond. Events range from navigating over the hills of Wales or Scotland, skydiving out of a plane, or learning the survival secrets of the Special Forces.

First In Events will provide you with the opportunity to participate in unique and challenging experiences in a safe and structured environment.

'FIRST IN’ is the motto of the Pathfinders, an elite Airborne unit that operates behind enemy lines in reconnaissance and strike operations.

First In Events was established by a former Pathfinder, who has a passion for the outdoors. Other instructors and staff members include former Special Forces operators and world class specialists in their respective fields of expertise.
