My story

[p]1st Battalion Welsh Guards will deploy to Kabul, Afghanistan in late March 2018 on an 8 month operational tour. [/p][p]During this deployment members of battalion will run the Newport marathon, Swansea and Cardiff Half Marathon the same time but 4,826 miles away in Afghanistan. This running challenge will be in aid of the Welsh Guards Charity and ABF the soldiers charity with all money raised split evenly.[/p][p]The organisers of all 3 events are totally supportive of the challenge and will support the runners by providing training assistance, t-shirt and medals for all runners plus promote our progression via social media.[/p][p]This challenge is a great opportunity for all but allows us as a battalion whilst on operations to raise money for servicemen, servicewomen and their families who need our help. Plus this will give members of the battalion a goal to train to while away. The runs will take place either outside or on a running machine but all will be recorded.[/p][p]We will continue to update this page with our progress.[/p][p]The dates for the events are:[/p][p]Newport Marathon: 29 April[/p][p]Swansea HM: 24 June[/p][p]Cardiff HM: 07 October [/p][p]We hope you can support us in our challenge by donating to both wonderful charities.[/p][p]CYMRU AM BYTH ???????????????????????????[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
