Walk 100km, following in the footsteps of those who fought over 100 years ago in WWI whilst supporting the soldiers and veterans of today.
Choose The Western Front walk to follow in the footsteps of those who fought on the Somme and Passchendaele battlefields during the First World War. Covering 100km of the Western Front, the Walk starts at Lochnagar Crater, the location of the start of the Battle of the Somme, and finishes at the Menin Gate, with the Ceremony of the Last Post, where the top three fundraisers will lay a wreath on behalf of the Charity and all the other walkers.
