Leon hits the road for Help for Heroes

Leon will be taking part in 5 Marathons over 5 days to support Project 65 - The Veterans Charity.

This extreme event has become a benchmark for endurance runners and walkers that transcends athletics and sports. It serves to capture in a nutshell the incalculable high regard and support felt for the Armed Forces; the fallen, the injured, the veterans and those still proudly serving.

The Forces March is one of the UK’s top challenge events. Participants attempt to complete five stages in five days. Each stage is at least 26.2 miles in length – 5 marathons in 5 days! The undulating all-road route begins in Ilfracombe, North Devon and passes through Exmoor, the Quantocks, Somerset and much of Salisbury Plain before finishing at The Forces Festival just outside of Bulford Camp, the UK’s biggest Army Garrison.

“I couldn't afford to be in full-time training, so learning on the job was a real bonus. It's really improved my prospects and the qualification looks great on my CV. I'll certainly be looking to do more training like this in the future.”
