Monday 20th June 2022

The National Museum of the Royal Navy, the National Army Museum, the Royal Air Force Museum and the Commonwealth War Graves Commission are joining forces for this virtual challenge – In the Footsteps of our Forces – that kicks-off today, Monday 20 June, Armed Forces Week.

Choose your distance – 10km, 25km or 50km – and join hundreds of others across the country running, walking, cycling or even swimming their way to the virtual finish line.

This Challenge is virtual which means you can participate and complete it from anywhere in the world. You can start marching on Monday 20 June, Armed Forces Week, and have until Sunday 3 July to complete.


Your entry is an amazing message of support for us, and enables us to continue sharing the stories of our Armed Forces. But if you would like to support the Museums and Commonwealth War Graves Commission with an additional donation you will be able to do so when you purchase your ticket. There is an option to add a donation amount of £5.00, £10.00 or £20.00 as part of the entry process.

All income from tickets and donations will be split equally between the four organisations.

Find out more about the challenge through the Commonwealth War Graves Foundation.
