Wales Leg Marathons
The Wales leg, which is taking part between the 20th June and 10th July, will be sponsored by Headquarter Company and will see members of the Battalion running marathons all over Wales. We want veterans, families and everyone connected with the Welsh Guards to join in or organised their own marathons. The activities are not limited to running – you can cover the 26.2 miles in any way that you want!
There will be a social element to each event; a change for veterans and serving soldiers to mingle over a few drinks. Details will be regularly updated on the WG100 blog and disseminated on Facebook.
Headquarter Company have had an extremely challenging but productive year leading up to our Centenary; in addition to sustaining the Battalion through its deployment to Kenya and taking the lead in the Unit move to Pirbright we are also focussed on our future role which will incorporate a huge vehicle uplift and consequent specialist training. In amongst this, WG100 represents an amazing opportunity to engage with our history; we may not be visiting Battlefields but we are connecting with the very stuff that our proud Regiment has been made from over the past 100 years. The Wales Leg celebrates our inheritance and the achievements of those that have gone before. We very much hope that you will get involved.
