Help to honour those who died in The Falklands War in 1982 and help to support The Veterans Charity.

We are 'yomping' again from Instow Beach to RMB Chivenor to honour those who served in the South Atlantic between April and June 1982, especially the 255 UK service personnel who gave their lives during the conflict.

The route begins on the beautiful Instow Beach and from there, follows the 'Tarka Trail' (South West Coast Path) through Yelland, Fremington, Bickington, Barnstaple, Heanton and finishes at the striking memorial at RMB Chivenor.
