About More

Military Remote Running (MRR) is an exciting new programme open to British soldiers worldwide, delivered in partnership by ABF The Soldiers’ Charity – the Army’s National Charity and R4W – one of the UK’s largest mass participation event organisers.

The programme gives soldiers an exclusive opportunity to participate competitively in virtual races (open only to members of the armed forces). There’s plenty on offer, from virtual races to commemorate D-Day and Armistice Day, to Super Recruit and New Tour Challenges.

MRR helps generate much-needed funds for the Soldiers’ Charity, whilst offering a meaningful fitness challenge

Events More

Run, ride or row from any outdoor location or gym in any worldwide location.

There are a number of events on offer, with a choice between competing in virtual races against fellow army personnel or remotely joining real-life events where your performance can be measured against thousands of others taking part.

Participation can be verified by physical training instructors, photographic evidence of gym equipment, fitness trackers and GPS data. Results can be compared against those of the same age, gender, military rank and location.

Those taking part will receive parcels including commemorative finishers medals to mark completion – whatever their worldwide location via BFPO.

ABF The Soldiers’ Charity is the national charity of the British Army, providing a lifetime of support to soldiers, veterans and their immediate families when they are in need. Since 1944, the welfare of the Army family has been at the heart of everything they do.

In the past year, they have helped 70,000 people in 68 countries across the globe and funded 92 charities and organisations that support the Army family at large. They pride ourselves on acting immediately when help is needed, providing true through-life support for the nation’s soldiers, veterans and families. Crucially, they act with speed. When they are alerted that a person or family is in need of help, they aim to make the relevant grant within 48 hours.

While there is a British Army, there will be The Soldiers’ Charity. All MRR races include an automatic donation to the charity. You can also choose to fundraise for them.
