***Registration is now OPEN for the 2017 COPS 30 Miler, which will be held on Saturday 2nd September 2017***
The COPS 30 miler is a 30 mile, load-bearing ‘yomp’ across rugged Northumberland countryside, with participants running alongside the Royal Marines. The event is the idea of Simon Guilfoyle and Lee Gosling, both serving police officers, who have secured official endorsement and logistical support from the Royal Marines. The aim of the event is to closely replicate the famous 30 mile yomp across Dartmoor that Royal Marines recruits must complete as the final commando test at the end of their training.
The COPS 30 miler will be as close as it gets to the real thing and aims to raise significant funds for the Care of Police Survivors charity (COPS), along with the Royal Marines Charity. All proceeds are shared equally between the two charities.
If you believe you have the mental and physical strength and commitment necessary to take part in the 2017 COPS 30 Miler, then you may now register your place here. Please also see the ‘Health Warning‘ page and Q&A section for more information.
