Organiser's Description

The Forces March is an epic recreation of a legendary 135 mile ww2 training march which covers a spectacular route from Ilfracombe to Bulford over 5 days. Each day is just over a marathon in length. The event attracts people from all backgrounds and experience levels, including serving military, veterans, ultra-runners and long distance walkers. Many participants return year after year for the unique camaraderie and atmosphere as well as the highly challenging route and stunning scenery. Entries for single days are welcome!

The Forces March. This is the exceptional events I ever take part in, firstly because it is in aid of The Veterans Charity plus 2020 represents the 9th occasion and I know I will see many of my lifelong friends there year after year. In addition, with no cut off the mental enjoyment level is increased. I fix the into my diary on repeat.
