19 – 20 June 2021
Allied Forces Foundation unites wounded, ill, and injured (WII) service people and veterans from the US, UK, and allied nations on their journey to recovery. Through a series of outdoor, peer-led events that challenge the mind and body, Allied Forces Foundation provides opportunities that reinvigorate the spirit of comradeship and teamwork and instill a renewed sense of purpose.
The situation this year meant that we could not join the ABF Cateran YOMP in the UK but we will be holding the Appalachian YOMP 2-3 October in the US. SO… we want to encourage people to get out and spend some time exercising in nature and using this Yomp Your Yard as a way to train for the upcoming Appalachian Yomp.
For that reason we are hosting a virtual YOMP (hike) on the weekend of June 19 & 20 which is free and open to everyone! You can register by yourself or, even better, join or start a team and encourage one another through your training and through the event – we’re using Strava to help with this.
On the event weekend, we want you to hike a distance of Bronze (5km), Silver (10km), Gold (15km), or Platinum (30km) – whatever distance works for you, and in whatever location you can.
There is no registration fee and no commitment to fundraising but you’ll be sent a fundraising page on registration and every bit you can raise will help us with our mission.
Please remember to adhere to any COVID-19 restrictions in place in your location.
