It’s a great way to get out and get active. You can cover the distance in any way you like: walking, running, cycling, swimming lengths or even riding a horse

You can follow your progress online via your own virtual map

The virtual route will run from Thiepval Memorial in France, following the battlefields and CWGC cemeteries and memorials on the Western Front and will finish at the iconic Menin Gate, Ieper.
It costs £25 to enter and you can choose to challenge yourself to raise £100, or as much as you can.Your support will help the Commonwealth War Graves Foundation support key projects like our Eyes On, Hands On volunteer programme which has already helped us inspect over 50,000 scattered war graves in the UK, or an educational project like our interactive digital exhibition at Runnymede, which explores the story of remarkable spy Princess Noor Inayat Khan.

Projects such as these enable the next generation to engage with stories of sacrifice that must never be forgotten.
