Matthew Melling

Ambassador

➡️ Everyday runner since 1st January 2017 (Over 1,450 Consecutive Days..)

➡️ Ran through 25 Countries in 4 Continents through every weather imaginable

➡️ Raised over £37,000 for Charity and Community Projects in the UK so far

➡️ Motivational Speaker and School Visitor

➡️ On Day 80 of the running streak someone pelted me with eggs which of course exploded everywhere, I decided there and then it wasn’t going to stop me running! I put a picture on social media briefly said what happened and suddenly thousands of people started following my running journey. On that day The Wigan Runner was Born and the journey began!

We’ve since run across 25 different countries in all kinds of climates and been lucky to experience some amazing adventures.

I document every run and what we do each day including weekly competitions on my social media pages too.
