About the South Coast Challenge

Date: 2021 – Date TBC

The Full Challenge
Distance: 100km
Location:  Dorset
Fundraising pledge: £595

The Half Challenge
Distance: 50km
Location: Dorset
Fundraising pledge: £395

The Quarter Challenge
Distance: 23km
Location: Dorset
Fundraising pledge: £245

Whether you’re a keen walker and new to endurance events, or even a seasoned marathon runner looking to up the distance, your challenge will be unforgettable, with full support along the way.

A seaside start on Saturday morning, you’ll walk, jog, or run 100km along the coastal path, over the South Downs Way through the day & night (for some) on this 24+ hour challenge all the way to Arundel.

Perhaps the half challenge is more appealing to you? Take on the 50km route and start or finish in Brighton.
Alternatively, there’s a 23km ‘quarter’ challenge from Eastbourne over the famous Seven Sisters. The full route goes through stunning scenery, with a Brighton half waypoint.

Any of these three challenges will be incredibly rewarding. With some training and determination, you’ll be amazed at what you can achieve!

You’ll get full support and hospitality all the way, leaving you to focus on your challenge!

How Your Fundraising Supports Veterans
TIM BROWN

Former Royal Engineer and AGC, Tim Brown was diagnosed with PTSD after serving in the Armed Forces for 23 years. His significant military career, which began in 1987, includes the Gulf War, Bosnia, a two-year tour of Northern Ireland and 2 tours of Iraq.

However, unfortunately, his extensive service eventually took a toll on his mental health.

Tim is now a Team Leader in RBLI’s leading social enterprise Britain’s Bravest Manufacturing Company. Tim’s father, Ray, served in the Merchant Navy from 1941 – 1945. Those four long years of World War Two saw Ray serve in the Italy landings at the Bay of Naples, support in the D-Day landings and help protect Burma and India from Japanese invasion.

Ray passed in 1977 when Tim was just nine, leaving behind his wife Connie and the medals he received for his heroism: The 1935-1945 star, the Atlantic Star with France & Germany clasp, The Burma Star, the Italy Star and The War Medal. Tim is a proud father to seven.

Paul

Veterans, like ex-Royal Marine Paul, came to RBLI in urgent need of support.

After serving for 22 years and suffering life changing physical injuries in Afghanistan, Paul was medically discharged, struggling with severe PTSD, anxiety and developed alcohol dependency.

Paul moved into Mount Batten Pavilion at speed; this is RBLI’s emergency accommodation for homeless veterans at those at risk of eviction.

Paul soon realised that he was surrounded by people who understood his struggles as many had been through a similar journey. RBLI’s village was the right environment for Paul to make progress – where emotional, physical and personal development needs are supported holistically by our on-site welfare team, helping him to make steps towards independence.

As his confidence and independence increases, we are supporting Paul’s goal to move into one of RBLI’s adapted independent living apartments and to pursue his interest in writing and art, and his ambition to study for a degree.

THERE BUT NOT THERE LEAVES ITS
LEGACY TO RBLI

A high-profile national remembrance project set up to commemorate a century since the end of the First World War has left its own legacy to Royal British Legion Industries (RBLI), ensuring that its work continues to benefit the country’s most vulnerable veterans.

There But Not There (TBNT), run by military charity Remembered, was launched in 2018 to ‘commemorate, educate and heal’ through the installation of moving World War I Tommy figures in communities throughout the UK.

RBLI and TBNT first joined forces at the beginning of the commemorative Tommy project, with veterans at RBLI’s social enterprise, Britain’s Bravest Manufacturing Company, producing a range of Tommy figures and the responsibility for their distribution.

Former head of the British Army and There But Not There patron Lord Dannatt said:“I am delighted that RBLI will be continuing the remarkable work achieved by Remembered over the last two years. The Tommy is an iconic figure symbolising sacrifice and service. RBLI are the ideal partners to keep this powerful symbol in the forefront of the nation’s recognition of those who have paid the ultimate price for our freedom and security.”

Today, Lord Dannatt continues his support.
