How it works

2018 sees the end of the Centenary years, to mark this challenge yourself to walk in the memory of those who fought. Discover local stories, visit local memorials and unite with hundreds of others by completing your distance before 11th November.

A virtual Frontline Walk is a personal challenge that can be completed at any location and logged on your phone or fitness band. You can start at your pace anywhere in the world.

It is a great way to stay fit and active, while supporting The Soldiers’ Charity. You’ll also get awesome rewards when you hit different milestones!

What is it?

Walk a total of 100km in 42 days. It is up to you how you would like to complete the walk, but we suggest researching your local war memorials and planning some walks which take in as many as possible. Discover fascinating details about the people of your hometown and what they did in the War, whilst paying your respects at the same time. The challenge can be completed over a few days, or the whole month, but you need to reach the 100 km between 1st October and 11th November 2018.

For help finding all your local war memorials, we suggest visiting War Memorials Online:

The difference your generosity can make:

£50

could help cover travel costs so a veteran can attend a job interview.

£75

could go towards the cost of a temporary wheelchair ramp, allowing an injured soldier to enter and leave his home.

£250

could contribute towards the care home fees of a frail elderly veteran who requires continuous care.

£1000

could help pay for home adaptations so that a veteran’s young disabled child can live in a safe and accessible environment.

You’ll also be able to join the Fundraising Army online community where you’ll find many like-minded people who will support and encourage you, as well as help you research your hometown or any family who fought in WWI.
