Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. 5 marathons in 5 days from Ilfracombe to Bulford.
    Entries are open to runners and walkers.
    There are several different categories of team entry:

    Military
    Civlian
    Emergency Services
    Corporate

    This year the 'Army Challenge Cup' was won by Para Provos team.
    There were military entries from Commando Logisitcs Regt, 158 Provost Coy, 2 and 7 Rifles and 21 SRAS
    We would love to see a lot more in 2011.
    We also were honoured to have over 60 ex-services veterans in the event too.

    Soldier Magazine said this about The Forces March:
    "This extreme event is a new benchmark for endurance runners and walkers but it transcends athletics and sport. The Forces March served to capture in a nutshell the incalculable high regard and support felt for military personnel of all generations. Side-by-side, civilians and soldiers marched for the Armed Forces; the fallen, the injured, the veterans and those still proudly serving."
