In 2016, Martin Hywood, who has  took on his biggest challenge yet. He committed to walking 14 individual miles around the UK’s most famous and beloved sporting sites. This year, Martin wanted to go even bigger than in 2016. And for Martin, this means taking on a mountain, Mount Snowdon to be precise. On July 1st, he and 30 of his close friends and family will be climbing to the peak, all to raise awareness and funds for Muscular Dystrophy UK and moving many miles in the process. Martin himself, admits that it will be a struggle and the hardest of all the miles he has done, but he wants to prove, as always:

If I can, you can too

Have a read of Martin’s story on his blog. If you would like to contact Martin directly, you can reach him on Twitter.

Martin is the charity’s official ambassador for Move a Mile for Muscles and as you can see from his incredible back catalogue of miles, he takes the responsibility very seriously. This has not gone unnoticed by supporters around the county and has inspired, among others, Hayley Lloyd and son Tommy and more recently, our 2016 Campaigner of the Year Bryan Gould.

In addition to Martin’s Snowdon challenge, he has already completed a very special Move a Mile for Martin which you can read about here, and has plans to repeat his Brands Hatch mile, Parallel London and put a new spin on his pub mile! Can’t wait to see what Martin achieves this year!
