The Forces March

Date & Location

Ilfracombe, Devon

Organiser’s Description

The Forces March has rapidly become a benchmark endurance event in the UK. Runners and walkers attempt to complete five highly demanding and challenging stages, totalling 139 miles - more than 5 marathons - over 5 days, from Ilfracombe in North Devon to Bulford in Wiltshire. The Forces March is not for the faint-hearted; most participants wish they had trained more for hills! However, every participant looks back at the March with great fondness and memories of an incredible adventure. 24-28 May.
