CTF 158 Half Marathon in Gulf for Service causes

#1
With RN physical fitness standards fresh in everyone's mind, I've just received this e-mail from a friend serving in the Gulf with CTF 158. Let's give it our backing, support our people in theatre and help some very worthy Service causes at the same time.

Hello from the Arabian Gulf and the KAAOT Oil Platform,

In a struggle to make some money for charity, the team here decided to run a half marathon around the Oil Platform (14 times around to be precise). We did it in teams of two from between 5am-7am to avoid the extremes of the heat (midday it's 50 degs) - although it was still pretty hot! Everyone who took part completed it. As you can see, the picture tells the story!

If you fancy sponsoring and adding to the good causes (service charities supporting those injured in recent conflicts - details shown on the website) then please click on this link and spend some money!

Thanks.
This was just the latest fundraising event organised by CTF 158 personnel to support the BFBS Big Salute campaign which is raising funds for BLESMA, Combat Stress, Veterans Aid, St Dunstan's and Headley Court. Just to reiterate, their Justgiving webpage can be found here. Perhaps certain old fogeys who have criticised the physical standard of today's naval personnel will now put their money where their mouths are?
