"I've run the Forces March 5 times now and it is the best multi-day marathon event on the calendar. You raise money for a great cause, you make life-long friendships and you will want to do it all again the following year."

PHIL HAMMOND - heading for his 100th marathon - 2018

"having completed numerous arduous adventurous training activities, competed Internationally in athletics and swum the channel supporting the participants of the Forces March has me in awe. Mentally and physically demanding it encapsulates all that is required to achieve great things. For the UAS students who partake this event ticks all the boxes of what the military want in their future armed forces. Long may it continue"

SGT KAREN MARTIN - University of Birmingham Air Squadron - 2016

Since participating in The Forces March in 2010 independently, it inspired me to want to come back as part of a team, being in the military and moving to 504 Sqn gave me this opportunity. I mentioned it to the OC who was up for the challenge and we entered a team with the HQ staff in 2015 and brought home the Military Team Challenge Cup.  This inspired the whole squadron,  I approached the part-time reservists to see if they would be up for the ‘challenge’.  There were a few volunteers and again we entered a team and now they understand the comradery, challenge, determination and true grit that this event makes.  It brings you out of your comfort zone and  stretches individuals making them realise what they are physically capable of achieving.  This year I won the ‘Most Outstanding Female’ award and was over the moon by winning this. 

This event makes you learn a lot about yourself that you didn’t already know and gives you the opportunity to meet people from all backgrounds that one wouldn’t necessarily have in their own environment.  It also makes you understand that this isn’t about winning or losing it’s about taking part in something special that could dramatically benefit someone less fortunate than yourself.

 

Some participants have already stated they have ‘unfinished business’ and will be back next year.
