Commemorate the Centenary of the First World War, walking in the footsteps of those who fought 100 years ago while supporting the soldiers and veterans of today.
The Hundred Days Offensive Walk will start near Arras in France and finish at St. Symphorien Military Cemetery near Mons, Belgium. This finishing point is particularly poignant; it is the final resting place of the first British casualty of WWI, John Parr, and the last British casualty, George Ellison. The top three fundraisers will have the chance to lay a wreath in commemoration.
Visits to major battle sites which played such a big part in shaping Britain and Europe as we know it today are brought to life by Historian Steve Roberts.
