The Royal British Legion Major Series

by Editor
Tuesday 12th January 2016

British Military Fitness have big plans for their event series, The Royal British Legion Major Series (www.majorseries.com), all new and improved for 2016.

To find our more, Run247 sent along Paul Hayward and Paul Shanley to British Military Fitness HQ in Chiswick to learn about the muddy obstacle challenge events, plus the growth of British Military Fitness.

British Military Fitness (www.britmilfit.com) was launched in 1999 looking to offer people the opportunity to train without a gym. Now in 2016 they have 400 events taking place at 130 locations around the UK. I have to be honest and say I have never really thought the training is for me, as I pictured myself in a field being shouted at by some big army instructor that I haven't done enough press ups... The reality it appears is far from that.

We spoke to co-founder Sergeant Harry Sowerby, who actually came up with the idea when he was an extra on the film Saving Private Ryan, and Alex Stanley, Head of Events for BMF to find out more:

If you want to get involved in training with BMF, you can find locations and classes through the website here: www.britmilfit.com.

The Major Series

British Military Fitness also organise The Royal British Legion Major Series, a series of four 'No Mud, No Glory!' events taking place in Birmingham (12th March), Leeds (20th March), Tunbridge Wells (9th April) and Port of Menteith, Stirlingshire (4th June).

If you want to book your place in the The Major Series and get to meet the Major you can visit the website here www.majorseries.com - if you are quick you can book your place before the price rise THIS FRIDAY, January 15th!

Check out the video below to see what fun awaits you.
