What is the C&O Yomp?

The C&O Yomp (COY) (Yomp is a British Commando term for a long-distance march) is a new concept for the USA and is one of the toughest events you can find. 

COY will be taking place on the 28-29 September 2024 alone on the C&O Canal trail of Washington DC and Maryland starting at Tidewater Lock, Alexandria, and finishing at Point of Rocks, Maryland. Teams tackle the challenge over 48miles (gold) in 24 hours over the tough terrain of the C&O Canal. You can also sign up for the silver or bronze distances (36 and 22 miles respectively). 

Why Take Part?

Sign up with friends, family, and colleagues to experience an unforgettable weekend whilst raising money for wounded, ill, and injured (WII), caregivers, active duty veterans, and their families. Whichever distance you choose, you will get to test both your physical and mental limits whilst trekking through some truly breathtaking scenery. 

Don’t worry if you don’t have a team, any individuals or pairs will be grouped together with individuals of similar abilities. Check out our Facebook page to connect with others who will be Yomping the amazing trail.
