Grenadier Walk of Oman expedition coming to a town near you!
Walking With The Wounded (‘WWTW’) has revealed the final route for its 6th expedition, The Grenadier Walk of Oman, of which The Duke of Sussex is the Expedition Patron.
The team were due to cross the
Omani desert, however, due to the global pandemic, they are now going to cross
the UK, walking the equivalent distance of 10 marathons in 12 days, to raise
funds and awareness for Walking With The Wounded’s employment, mental health,
care coordination and volunteering programmes supporting veterans and their
families to get back on their feet and contribute in their communities once
Starting on Pen-Y-Fan in Wales, the 6-man team will walk through Hereford (home of the Special Air Service ‘SAS’) and Cheltenham, before arriving at the start of the infamous Thames path- a long-distance walking trail that follows the river Thames from its source in the Cotswolds before arriving in the heart of London and finishing at the Anglo Omani Society in London. The team will be supported by a Grenadier vehicle for parts of the route. Due to various physical injuries, some team members will only be able to walk part of the route – overcoming their individual situations to achieve what they can.
