In support of our status as Charity of the Day for the Army v Rugby match, The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity is delighted to bring back one of our favourite, most physically active events of the year - the Road to Twickenham.

For the uninitiated, our challenge tasks you with traversing the equivalent distance of your workplace, ship, unit, or even gym club, to Twickenham Stadium, TW2 7BA, before the big Army v Navy rugby showdown on 9 May.

You may choose to run, row, ride, swim– or use any other means of physical activity – to reach the stadium.

For example, if you are serving in Portsmouth, you could jump on the rowing machine and take on 80 miles. Or, if you are the spouse of a serviceman in Helensburgh, you could ride 443 miles with your cycling club. You could do this individually or as part of a team.

A challenge for anyone

Fundraising Co-ordinator, Hilary Jukes says: “Road to Twickenham is one of our favourite campaigns because it’s so easy for everyone to be involved, no matter your level of fitness.

“Last year our servicemen and women were really creative, climbing ropes and taking on ‘reverse jailbreaks’ to make up their miles. This year we’d love to see the same initiative – and also see more entries from non-serving personnel. Royal Naval friends, families, ex-serving personnel and local businesses are equally welcome to join in, have fun, get fit and raise cash in the process.”
