“The bonds and memories you make in the military are like no other. Although we have become civilians these bonds don’t diminish,” says Ollie. “We’ve taken on Soldier 30:30 as we feel that ex-military and emergency services people can be some of the most vulnerable in society.

The mental health challenges they face are compounded by the sense of isolation felt when leaving the services. We’re excited to be able to help by racing in good company in a beautiful part of the world.”

Soldier 30:30 begins on 13 October. Donations to Team Stand218 can be made here.
