Lt Gareth Jenkins

Was A Royal Marine trainee who died on a training exercise in Dartmoor . Gareth was a member of our friends in CrossFit NW1 and they have written a workout to honour his memory.

Lt Jenkins, from Colwyn Bay, Conwy, collapsed at the Commando Training Centre, Lympstone, Devon, while on a 30-mile (48km) march on Thursday 28th May.

A Royal Navy spokesman said: “The thoughts and sympathies of the naval service are with his family and friends at this time.”

Lt Jenkins, who was in his mid-20s, died during the so-called “30-miler” march, the last major test undertaken as part of the 32-week Commando course.

Trainees must complete it carrying at least 32lbs (15kg) of equipment in a maximum time of eight hours.
