Maroon Memorial

The Maroon Memorial team are training hard ahead of the start of their mammoth challenge next week. On 10 October, they will be cycling 1,100 miles from Bosnia to the UK in just over a week.

The team, made up of serving Paratroopers from 3 PARA and the 82nd Airborne Division, are planning to cycle the distance to raise money in memory of their colleague, LCpl Will Plant, who sadly passed away earlier this year.

Their route will see them pass through 7 countries, over some of Europe’s most arduous terrain, including the Austrian Alps. This cross country challenge is a far cry from the challenges they usually face in the sky!
