Six British Military Fitness (BMF) instructors will take part in the arduous Enduroman Arch to Arc this June to raise money for Help for Heroes and at the same time hopefully strip the current World record holders of their title

Carlos Glencairn-Campbell (41yrs), Nigel Ilsley (36yrs), Matt Walker (29yrs), Jeremy Nelson (46yrs), Paul Kenny (34yrs) and Andy Bosman (27yrs), all BMF instructors will run from Marble Arch to Dover, swim to Calais and then cycle to the Arc de Triomphe, over 300 miles in total. If that wasn’t enough they will also be trying to beat the time of 63 hours and 26 minutes set by a team from British Gas in June 2009.

Team captain and instigator, Carlos Glencairn-Campbell thinks the world record title is in reach: “Yes there is no doubt this event will be a challenge to us all, but between us we have hours of experience in similar races and we will encourage each other throughout the different stages. Raising money for Help for Heroes is such an important part of this challenge as four of us are still serving in the Territorial Army (TA) with three of us completing tours of Iraq in 2003/2004. We have recently decided to dedicate this race to our good friend and fellow BMF instructor Tom Keogh who recently died serving his country in Afghanistan.”

The team not only spend their time during the week getting the public in shape through their BMF sessions in local parks, they also find the time to take part in events such as the Marathon des Sables (Carlos), the Jungle marathon in Brazil (Jeremy) and Trailwalker UK 2009 (Nigel).

Major Robin Cope (Ret’d), Managing Director at BMF, supports them throughout their challenge: “Throughout anyone’s Army career the skill of teamwork is learnt and events like this really put this to the test. I have no doubt that these six guys, through pure determination, will complete the event in record time and as a result raise a substantial amount of money for such a worth cause.”
