They have already skied 1664km across Norway, sailed 1664km to Spain, cycled 1664km through France and kayaked across the English Channel.
They are now running approximately 20 miles a day and will continue to do so until Friday, July 25 when they reach 1664km in London.
Taking a well deserved break, they enjoyed a reception within the Tudor style building, while the band prepared to perform on the promenade.
The remarkable challenge is being undertaken in order to inform people of the three-and-a-half centuries of unbroken service in protecting and promoting the nation’s security, prosperity and reputation; both at home and overseas.
They are raising money for the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund.
