Tough Challenge Great Cause

Do you have what it takes to endure an event that is both physically and mentally challenging?

The Pathfinder March is an annual long-distance endurance event in which walkers and runners have to complete 46-miles inside 20 hours, and organisers are calling on people to sign up to take part.

The march, being held on Saturday, June 23, is open to both military and civilian personnel, and the route can be walked or run either individually or as part of a relay team.

The route starts and finishes at RAF Wyton and links the four historical RAF Pathfinder Forces stations of Wyton, Graveley, Oakington and Warboys. The walk itself is not designed to make a profit for charity or otherwise, as its sole purpose is to commemorate the Pathfinder Force and their efforts during the Second World War, but people can use the walk as a challenge to raise money for charities of their choice such as Emma Kenyon and Karen Clarke, who raised over £800 for MacMillan Cancer Support by taking part in the march
last year.

The entrance fee is just £12 per person and application forms are available from: www.pathfindermarch.co.uk or contact Flight Lieutenant Nick Tucker, Treasurer, RAF Wyton, Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire PE28 2EA, tel. 01480 52451, ext 7320 or Squadron Leader Paul Tuite, Project Officer, RAF Wyton, Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire PE28 2EA, tel. 01480 52451, ext 7610.
