100th Nijmegen March 2016

nijimegan2016FS Jordan Avery (17 yrs) completed the Nijmegen 100th Anniversary March as part of the “Pathfinder” 40km team (civilian under 18).

He was selected for the team having completed 10 training marches based at RAF Wyton.
He said, “We had huge amounts of support from all of the locals handing us sweets and refreshments on the way.┬áChallenging weather conditions with highs of over 37 degrees Celsius and huge thunderstorms.”
Although FS Avery┬ádidn’t suffer from any injuries, however there was a 10% overall drop out from the 48,000 that started. So we are happy to congratulate him on completing the march and especially during its centenary.
