British Forces ‘Super challenge’ 2010
Military charity Project 65 has created FORCES MARCH, an incredible annual ‘Super challenge’ to raise funds for the care and support of wounded armed forces personnel and bereaved families. They are extending invitations to the entirety of Her Majesty’s armed forces, emergency services and civilians to enter a team into the march.
The event is open to both able-bodied and disabled participants. Teams consist of a minimum of 4 persons and each team must have their own support crew and vehicle to assist with transportation, camp set-up and equipment supplies.
Entrants may also choose to do any combination of 1 stage to all 5 stages. You can enter FORCES MARCH as an individual as well. Transport vehicles are being laid on to transport individual entrant’s kit from the start to the finish of each stage.
The march will be run over 5 days with four overnight stops along the route.
Each day will be a ‘stage’ of the march with the leading teams scoring points for finishing in the first ten places. The highest points total on day 5 will be the winning team!
There will be three groups of participants, each starting at different times; Disabled, Walkers and Runners.
The course is particularly challenging with many hills and valleys along the way.
Spectacular scenery is very much a part of the route!
