Just Rifles is proud to announce that Captain Dutch Holland completed the 2018 London Marathon in 5hr28, raising nearly £3000.
A veteran of Royal Green Jackets and 4 Rifles Rifleman since 1979, and active member of the British Army Reserves, Dutch ran the London Marathon this year on behalf of Just Rifles.
Dutch ran the 26.2 mile race in memory of the 453 British Army Soldiers that were killed in action in Afghanistan since 2001.
Throughout his military career, Dutch has been assisting Riflemen in many ways, to help them adjust to civilian life. A keen ultra-athlete and mountain leader, he has consistently fundraised through charity events, enabling less fortunate Riflemen to maintain a decent quality of life when they have found themselves in unusual circumstances.
Dutch’s fund-raising page is still live and any donations would be greatly appreciated. This was the hottest London Marathon on record, and Just Rifles is thrilled by the determination of Dutch in completing the course in such an admirable time.
