This trek along the Western Front remembers the incredible sacrifices made by all those who fought in the First World War. We will walk in their footsteps, and those who followed in WW2.

Walking an average of 13 miles per day over three days we’ll pass between the battle-sites and memorials of World War One, around Passchendaele and the Somme, before finishing at the iconic Menin Gate in Ypres.

This trek provides a unique perspective as our dedicated historian adds insight and engaging stories as we walk between the prominent battle-sites. There are beautiful views over the now-tranquil countryside, but as we walk along the hill-ridges and through the fields and woodland, it is all too easy to imagine events of the past. This is a poignant experience as well as a physical challenge – a memorable and meaningful way to raise funds to support the Armed Forces community.

There are three funding options to suit everyone:

Option A – fundraising

  • Register for £199
  • Fundraise £1,399

Option B – self fund (deposit)

  • Register for £199
  • Pay £600 yourself by 15 July 2020
  • Fundraise £799

Option C – self fund

  • Pay full cost £799
  • Fundraise £799

Be a part of this truly unforgettable trek
