The Wales 500 Jubilee Cup teams arrive in Windsor

June 3

The Wales500  21st – 27th May 2022 

Five teams of four will walk a five-hundred-mile relay (a maximum of 120 miles per person), around the coastline of Wales, through countryside, towns and cities finishing on the summit of Snowdon. Teams start together on the May 21st completing anytime before the Queen’s Platinum JubileeCulminating on 3rd June with a celebratory walk along the Long Walk and presentation of the Wales500 Jubilee Cup for the fastest team. The core objective is to introduce RE-ENGAGE to the heart of Welsh communities, raise funds and profile for the charities involved whilst generating content for news and social media.

“The Welsh Guards are very proud to be part of this historic event, especially during Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee year. Working with Chris, through the fantastic medium of rugby and physical challenge, will not only help veterans, but also inspire our serving soldiers to do more within our communities and charities.” MAJOR DW PRIDMORE,  OC HQ Company Welsh Guards

RE-ENGAGE is a social enterprise-led outreach programme of skills development, blending sports coaching with a formal classroom setting. Experience & authority connect to young people, regenerating & enhancing skills through a curriculum focused on career, health, team sports & wellbeing. Supported by pioneering wellness-based digital platforms, RE-ENGAGE is a programme developed by CHRIS CHUDLEIGH, the trainer who pioneered the SCHOOL OF HARD KNOCKS intervention showcased in the SkySports TV show of the same name.

The RE-ENGAGE programmes developed by Chris Chudleigh (Veteran of The Royal Welsh), draw their inspiration from his early work & intervention programmes he designed for the WRU, Local Government, HMPPS, And the Veterans Treatment Programme in America.  Re-Engage is about connecting people who can help and inspire each other and works with disengaged young people AND crucially the authority figures most involved in their lives.

Wales500 Patron and Teams Manager – CHRIS MOON, MBE – Working for a charity clearing landmines in Cambodia he is one of the few westerners ever to survive being captured and held hostage by the Khmer Rouge. Undeterred he continued supervising mine clearance and was blown up in a clear area of the safety lane losing his lower right leg and right arm. Within a year of leaving hospital he ran the London Marathon, raising money for charities assisting the disabled. He has since completed more than fifteen other marathons, including the punishing Marathon des Sables, … a 137 mile race across the Sahara
