Grenadier Walk of Oman. Day 12- Together we overcome.
They have made it! The Grenadier Walk of Oman team has reached the official finish line at The Anglo Omani Society in London.
They started the expedition 12 days ago, climbing Pen-Y-Fan in Wales, walking in stages through Herefordshire and Gloucestershire, walking along the infamous Thames path, and following the river from its source in the Cotswolds all the way to central London.
Although the team set out with the aim to cover the original 400km distance, the team’s mental and physical health comes first, and instead, they covered a phenomenal 300km+, facing every element of British weather, fighting through some incredible blisters, and coming together to ensure every member of the team reached the finish line. They proved that together, we can all overcome.
WWTW’s CEO, Fergus Williams, said: “The Grenadier Walk of Oman expedition team has faced an incredibly uplifting and gruelling journey to reach the finish line in London. They have walked from Wales across the country to the Capital, faced the best of British weather, and worked together and helped each other when things got tough.
Our expeditions demonstrate that veterans can still achieve at the highest level after they have left a career in the Armed Forces, they raise awareness of the vital work that Walking With The Wounded does and they provide inspiration to those coping with physical and mental injuries. Well done to The Grenadier Walk of Oman team and thank you for going above and beyond to support WWTW. Special thanks to our key expedition Partners, INEOS Grenadier, Craghoppers, Monster Energy, Avanti Communications, Shard Capital and The Invictus Games Foundation for supporting WWTW and those who served.”
