Soldiers bootcamp Yomp training


SOLDIERS were being put through their paces by children last week with some bootcamp training at Edinburgh’s Arthur’s Seat.

The troops were training for the Alliance Trust Cateran Yomp which is Scotland’s new big annual walk.

The walk is set to lead Yompers across Perthshire in an epic 54-mile trek on 25-26 June.

 Money from the event will go to ABF The Soldiers Charity (formerly the Army Benevolent Fund), which raises money for serving and former soldiers and their families.

 The Alliance Trust Cateran Yomp is set to be fun-filled weekend for all the family with live bands, fireworks and a magic lit forest trail along the route.

Yompers can go for the bronze, silver or gold challenge – open to walkers of any ability – and also let their little ones share in the fun in a ‘Mini Yomp’.
