The Rock Run 2014

Man of Steel’ Henry Cavill joins fundraisers and Gibraltarians to celebrate a very important birthday

British actor and ambassador for the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund (RMCTF), Henry Cavill will be jetting out to Gibraltar in October to take part in a very special challenge. The Gibraltar Rock Run will take place on Saturday 25 October and will celebrate 350 years of the Royal Marines and raise valuable funds for the RMCTF.

No visit to Gibraltar by the armed forces is complete without the Royal Navy’s traditional Rock Run, which is where organiser Alan Hardy got the idea for the event.

“With the 350th anniversary of the Royal Marines this year I couldn’t think of a better place to hold a fundraising event for the Corps’ own charity. The Gibraltar Rock Run will see over 40 participants from the UK and many more from Gibraltar run the 5K up the famous landmark.  Gibraltar will always hold a special place in Royal Marines history and this is seen today in the main battle honour, which makes up part of their cap badge. With support from His Excellency the Governor of Gibraltar, Lieutenant General Sir James Dutton KCB CBE we have organised a fantastic weekend of fun and celebrations for participants and the locals of Gibraltar. We are delighted that Henry Cavill will be joining us for the event and are sure he’ll enjoy what Gibraltar has to offer.”

The event will take place over the last weekend of October with over 140 participants arriving in Gibraltar from the UK and USA on Friday ahead of a gruelling 5km run up the 426m high infamous rock race route on Saturday morning. Other planned celebrations over the weekend include a gala cocktail reception hosted by Lieutenant General James Dutton and a Royal Marines band concert in St Michaels Cave.

His Excellency Lieutenant General Sir James Dutton says:

“I am delighted to be able to endorse this event, which in raising funds for the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund underpins the status, history, and importance of Gibraltar’s unique relationship with the Royal Marines. To hold the event on the 350th anniversary of the birth of the Royal Marine Corps, which carries Gibraltar as its principal battle honour is indeed special.”

Residents of Gibraltar are being invited to take part in the Rock Run and the Postal Walk, an extra event organised by the RGPO in conjunction with the Royal Marines 350th celebrations. The walk will be 1,664 metres and will be a ‘Fun Walk' involving the collection of unique hand stamps from points based round its pillar boxes in Gibraltar’s centre-of-town area. Children of 13-years and under are further invited to take part in a “best-dressed Royal Marine” competition prior to the start of the main event.  Entry to this event is £10 for adults and £3 for children or £15 and £5 on the day. To enter these fantastic events please visit www.rmctf.org.uk and head to the events section.

The Gibunco Gibraltar Literary Festival 2014

Different venues around Gibraltar  further details to be announced shortly

The Rock’s first ever international literary festival was a resounding success. 

An eclectic mix of authors, historians and literary critics

delighted audiences with a varied and absorbing programme of lectures that delved

into the most diverse range of cultural, literary and historical subjects.

The eight selected venues reverberated with excitement as audience participation,

book-signings and book sales of participating authors confirmed the Festival’s

successful birth and powerful eruption onto the European stage of literary festivals.

From the erudite and scholarly to the accessible and popular, the festival’s range of

content, efficient logistics and standards of hospitality impressed participants

who are experienced veterans from some of the most prestigious and well

established literary festivals in UK and the world.

Minister for Tourism, Public Transport, Commercial Affairs and the Port Neil Costa

MP, summed it all up at the end of three intense days of cultural activity, borrowing a

phrase from the Booker prize-winning novelist and poet Ben Okri regarding the

festival, to state “It was a triumph.”
