2018 Nijmegen Marches

The Nijmegen Marches are the world’s largest walking event where military individuals cover 160km over four days whilst carrying 10kg. This year, eight members of 154 (Scottish) Regiment took part in the 102nd march alongside 41,000 other marchers.

In early May, the team entered the Scottish Garelochhead two-day march as its qualifying event. The terrain was hard with the team having to complete countless ascents and descents over 50 miles.

The team set sail for Rotterdam in Jul bound for Heumensoord Camp along with over eight thousand other soldiers from thirty-seven nations.

Despite the miles and heat inevitably taking its toll, morale remained high throughout the event and the team reached the 40km point in good order and were each awarded the Cross for the Four Days Marches (Vierdaagskruis), along with the Group Medal (Groepsmedaille van der Vierdaagse).

It then formed up alongside the rest of the British Military Contingent and completed the 5km parade through the town where it was treated to a welcome befitting a major sporting triumph.
