BE A SUPERHERO: HELP MARTIN CARVER HELP UK VETERANS
This Saturday 3rd July Martin Carver is taking on the ‘Wolf Run’ - a hardcore 10km wild running challenge - to raise much needed funds for PTSD Resolution.
Held in Warwickshire, the Wolf Run is designed to test mental strength as much as physical - something that resonated with Martin, an ex-Parachute Regiment Veteran. “PTSD is also a daily challenge for those who suffer,” he says.
At 60, with a son in the Royal Marines, the welfare of ex-service personnel is a cause close to Martin’s heart. “Like all ex-military people I have had friends that have had PTSD - and they continue to struggle with it.”
Martin regularly competes in charity running events, usually with a twist. To date he has completed weighted half marathons (with a 30lbs rucksack on his back!), water-less runs and obstacle courses - often in fancy dress and always to raise awareness about PTSD.
The Wolf Run is his biggest challenge yet with a unique combination of off-road running - across raw natural terrain including open ground, woodland, lakes and thick mud. Every contestant is required to run, climb, jump, wade, crawl and swim through a punishing course.
Martin ’s training regimen has been intense with regular, weighted runs around Redditch - in costume and, quite literally, flying the flag for PTSD Resolution. “I think it is an AMAZING charity,” says Martin, “especially in these Covid-19 times.”
