The challenge officially starts on September 9th (the anniversary of the date the Regiment was founded) and closes on September 30th. Participants, can if they wish, complete the challenge before the event start date. The race is a UK Athletics licenced event.

 

What is a virtual challenge?
 
This is a virtual challenge, which means you can take part anywhere in the world, in your own time and at your own pace. This also includes treadmill runs, perfect for those who maybe isolating.

 

How do I take part?

 

The event is open to everyone of all ages and abilities and can be completed by running or walking, either indoors or outdoors, in one session or over multiple sessions. It's easy to take part, once you have entered the race we will send you a step-by-step guide. It couldn’t be easier!

 

Once entered into the race, complete your 10k in your choice of location and then send us recorded evidence of the distance and time completed - you can use your fitness device or a screenshot of your session(s). To appear on the leaderboard you will need to complete and send us evidence of ONE single run or walk. There will be prizes for winners and age category winners.

 

All race participants will receive an amazing bespoke Tigers 10k Regimental medal.

 

The Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment

 

The Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment, known as the Tigers has a Benevolent Fund which was set up to relieve hardship and support veterans as well as serving soldiers in times of dire need.  Whilst a relatively new Regiment, the Tigers only formed in 1992 amalgamated from the Queen’s Regiment and Royal Hampshire Regiment.  This means that we not only support our younger veterans but also support our venerable older veterans from those regiments and their forebears also.  Ranging from veterans who fought in all theatres of WW2, through to the Korean War, the fight against Terrorism in Northern Ireland and up to the life changing injuries inflicted on our soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Not only physical injuries though, as many of our Tigers suffer from the mental anguish from multiple deployments to many of these theatres - the number of suicides over the last few years is testament to that struggle.

 

The PWRR Benevolent Fund

 

By entering the Tigers 10K you are directly supporting those soldiers in their hour of need.  The PWRR is a registered charity (No. 1024418) and their work ensures that members of the Regiment, forebear Regiments and their families have access to support and advice to guide them through difficult times, relieving hardship and distress.  Examples range from help with purchasing a mobility scooter which allowed an WW2 veteran to leave his flat through to renovating a house to allow a young veteran amputee and his family to live a full life.  By taking part in this challenge, you will be making an impact on the lives of our National heroes.

 

They stood up when our country needed them, now it’s our turn to stand up and help them.
