Tommy’s D-Day Trek is a fundraising challenge designed to mark the 80th anniversary of the D-Day Landings in 1944.

Trek with us from midnight through the North Downs in Kent to raise vital funds to support Royal British Legion Industries. The Trek will cover 44km across the beautiful Kent countryside, through villages, fields and woodland whilst ending up in the beautiful village of Chilham at the historic Chilham Castle.

The Route will be marshalled by the Ghurkas and breakfast will be included along the route to keep you fully fuelled mid way through your trek.

It was at 10am on 6 June 1944 that the BBC Home Service presenter, John Snagge, announced these immortal words: “D-Day has come. Early this morning the Allies began the assault on the north-western face of Hitler’s European fortress.
