World Record Speed March Attempt

The Club is supporting a team of 8 to 10 Serving & Veteran Royal Marines are to run the Exeter Marathon on 19th May 2019 to better the current World Record carrying 31lbs with a rifle (40lb in total).

Since 1664 Yomp

Since 1664 Yomp

The Club will be on hand to support with the marshalling of the 1664 Yomp in May.

This 100-mile ‘stroll’ is not for the faint-hearted and some would argue harder than the famous Commando tests Royal Marines encounter to earn their green beret. Get your hiking boots on and show us what you are made of. 

Departing from Abey Gardens, next to King Alfred’s Statue in the centre of Winchester soon after first light on Saturday 26th May 18 and following the official 100 mile (160K) route, with the minor detours to get to suitable scran points, we finish just beyond the bottom of Beachy Head after Yomping a full 166.4 KMs.

Yomp, or Your Own Marching Pace, came to public prominence in 1982, When 3 Cdo Bde Yomp across the Falkland Islands.  Since 1664, when the Corps was formed as the Duke of York’s Maritime Regiment of Foot, The Royal Marines has been overcoming seemingly impossible physical and mental challenges to achieve their objectives. It’s the Commando Mindset.

Rondane Høyfjellshotell (map)

We believe that everyone needs a holiday from time to time. Our goal is to give veteran & serving Royal Marines with physical, mental or financial challenges, a short break with their families free of any significant expense. During the Royal Marines Club Winter Deployment, we hope to reignite old friendships, start new ones and generally have a hoofing time!

We’re grateful to the Rondane Høyfjellshotell, Veteranforbundet SIOPS and The Royal Marines Charity who we partner with for this special week.
