Aggies' Pastoral Worker, Christian Hill has undertaken the South Devon 'yomp' with 1 Assault Group and 30 Commando.  Based in Plymouth the marines aim to complete 1,664 miles in 100 days to raise money for their 1664 charity.   1664 miles in 100 days works out at just under 17 miles every day. Christian joined the team on 8 miles of their 'yomp' on their eighteenth day.

Having completed the 8 miles set by two Royal Marine 'runners' Christian said "it was a great opportunity to 'hang out' with the lads and completing the 8 miles was tough going but  a real achievement as I think I might be a bit older than them and I am certainly not a runner"
