The Bowra 1000 was a 1000-mile multidisciplinary challenge carried out in June-July 2020.
Mark designed the Bowra 1000 to demonstrate that with courage, determination and cheerfulness in the face of adversity anything is possible. It is no coincidence that these key elements of the Commando spirit have helped to create the DNA of the Bowra Foundation.
3 PEAKS CHALLENGE
Switching the Bowra 1000 in 2020 to a virtual event left Mark Bowra with unfinished business with the Three Peaks.
In 2021, Mark recruited a team of veterans and people living with neurological injuries to join him in tackling the Three Peaks of Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis over three days.
As well as challenging themselves Mark and his team raised vital funds to support Bowra Foundation’s work with veterans and brain injury survivors. The event was proudly supported by Lester Brunt Wealth Management.

ISLES OF SCILLY
In Summer 2021, Mark led a group of veterans and their family members on a fantastic camping and watersports experience. Focusing on kayaking and conservation activities, the team spent four days in the beautiful Isles of Scilly and the North Atlantic building skills, resilience and friendships.
Veteran participation was generously funded by Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust.
