The route of The Forces March is very challenging!

The hills begin within 1/2 a mile of the start and are a constant feature of the route so extensive hill training (up and down!) is a must.

The scenery is among the most stunning in the UK as the route takes in the delights of the North Devon coast, Exmoor, rural Somerset and the Quantock Hills, Somerset Levels and Salisbury Plain.

We also pass through many wonderful villages and towns along the way.

To complete The Forces March takes dedicated training and a high level of determination however, it is NOT A RACE and there are no prizes for coming first. The unique atmosphere and incredible scenery of The Forces March is what brings people back year after year.

The Forces March is a trademark of and is organised and hosted by The Veterans Charity.
