What is it?
The Yompathon is the brainchild of James Mazzoni-Dalton (MD) and is a 3863 mile march across the United Kingdom visiting over two hundred Military and emergency service establishments. It is being undertaken by seven former and serving British Service personnel from across the seven branches of the services (Royal Navy, Royal Marines, British Army, Royal Air Force, Police, Fire and Rescue and Emergency Ambulance Service) to raise money and awareness for mentally wounded front line service personnel suffering from Mental Health issues. They started their challenge on 1st October 2022.
After 40 days, the rompers completed their 3863 mile journey in Hampshire, having crossed the length and breadth of the UK. Below are just a selection of the photos and videos taken during the event which provide some detail on the motivations, challenges and achievement of all those who took part and all those who helped support the team and enable them to complete this remarkable feat of endurance.
