2016 03 05 Twenty Mile March in Honour of Everleigh Pierce
Delaware to Battle Hill, ON
7:00 AM - 3:30 PM

To commemorate the 202nd anniversary of the Battle of the Longwoods, the UTMRS, which portrays the 1814 Light Company of the Royal Scots, will be again marching from Delaware to Battle Hill, the site of the battle, a distance of twenty miles. Again they will be raising funds in honour of five-year-old, Everleigh Pierce, for the Pulmonary Hypertension Association of Canada.

The march will commence at 7:00 am, on Saturday, March 5 at the parking lot near the 402 exit on the Longwoods Road.  The UTMRS will this year be joined by the Royal Scots Grenadier re-enactment group as well as any members of the public interested in the march or raising funds for the PHA.

The march will be broken into two components and marchers may do one or both of the components.  The first component, will be the march to Melbourne, a distance of about 10 miles, along the Longwoods Road, and the second component, following lunch, will be to complete the other ten-mile march to Battle Hill.
