Royal Marine Reserve Scotland to support Captain David Seath 5K Memorial Run event

We are delighted to announce that RMR Scotland will, once again, support our Captain David Seath 5K Run/Walk event on Sunday 22 April 2018 at Pittencrieff Park Dunfermline, who will provide a Royal Marine style warm-up for our runners and walkers as well as a series of fun, engagement activities for all the family. Our sincere thanks for their continued support.

Gary Seath said:

“It was wonderful to work with the Royal Marine Reserve, once again, for the Captain David Seath 5K Memorial Run/Walk event. David’s military career began in the Royal Marine Reserve, prior to graduating from the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst and becoming an Officer in 29 Commando Regiment Royal Artillery.

“It was clear that a strong bond exists within the Royal Marine Commando units and, therefore, the presence of the Royal Marine Reserve at fundraising events, such as the Captain David Seath 5K Memorial Run, contributes to a real sense of solidarity and we offer our sincere thanks to the Royal Marine Reserve for supporting David’s legacy.

Captain David Seath tragically died running the 2016 London Marathon and the 5K run/walk event was established to take place on the day subsequent London Marathons take place as a means to support the memorial fund set up in his name and commemorate his life.


The Captain David Seath Memorial Fund has raised £273,000 and provided over two-hundred and twenty welfare grants to personnel and veterans of the British Armed Forces living with life-changing physical injuries and psychological trauma through Help for Heroes, the charity David was running for that tragic day.

David’s memorial fund is making a huge and lasting difference to its beneficiaries. Every donation made in his memory is used to support Help for Heroes’ Quick Reaction Fund (QRF) which provides specialist sports equipment, respite breaks and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) therapy, as well as facilitating supported employment placements, training courses and the setting up of small businesses.
