The Forces March 2017

Ilfracombe, Devon


Date 24 May 17 Distance 134 mi Surface Road

Event details

The Forces March has become one of the UK's toughest adventures!

Following the route of a legendary 134 mile WW2 training march from Ilfracombe to Bulford, participants will cover the equivalent of FIVE MARATHONS IN FIVE DAYS and take in some of the UK's most stunning scenery.

The camaraderie that forms among the walkers and runners is remarkable and the atmosphere on the campsites is always superb.

The Forces March is truly a life-changing event, not just for those taking part but for the many Veterans who benefit from the funds raised for The Veterans Charity.

Entries are open to walkers and runners over the age of 16. Comprehensive training is an absolute must for this event - especially on hills!
