This group of pals will be running back into Hemel Hempstead on Saturday after a massive four-day 100 mile challenge.

Led by James Allsopp, the team – made up of serving and former members of the armed forces – will arrive at the bandstand in Marlowes at 2pm where they will be welcomed home by Dacorum Mayor Bert Chapman and the town’s MP Mike Penning .
