NAEA Past President takes on the Mud7 challenge

Tuesday 15 August 2017

Former NAEA Propertymark President Martyn Baum has taken on one of the country's toughest, muddiest, and scariest obstacle courses - the Mudnificent 7!

The Mud7 is a gruelling seven kilometre endurance course made up of seven zones, each designed to get the heart pumping.

As part of an 85-person strong crew, Martyn embarked upon the course, fending off zombies, and more importantly, raising awareness of Motor Neurone Disease (MND) and the Michael Smith Trust along the way.

Back in December 2014, a school friend of Martyn's, 33-year-old Michael Smith, was diagnosed with the terminal illness Motor Neurone Disease. The quick progression of the condition has meant that Michael has had to make big changes to his home and life at a rapid rate. The funds raised by the trust make life a little easier for Michael and his family.

Coming together with old school friends and former colleagues from Leaders estate agents, Martyn and the Michael Smith Challenge team have so far raised over £1,600 for the trust! This year the funds will be split with between the Michael Smith Trust and Leicestershire based hospice LOROS, who are committed to delivering a high standard of care to those with a terminal illness.

Speaking to Martyn after the race he said: "It was without doubt the toughest physical challenge I have taken on. There was almost 1700 people taking part on the day I was particularly pleased with a sub three and a half hour time.

"People who know me know I'm not one for wading through mud, climbing over six-foot walls, crawling under cargo nets, swimming across lakes, carrying sand bags and being chased by zombies. It was for a great cause, a great family and a great fella."
