Lions to honour Brian Wood's 'Ultimate Sacrifice' challenge

Lap of honour at half-time...

1 December 2021

Following the completion of 'The Ultimate Sacrifice Challenge', Brian Wood MC will undertake a lap of honour at half-time during this Saturday's Sky Bet Championship match against Birmingham City at The Den.

On 1st November, Brian began his tribute to our fallen from the Iraq and Afghanistan conflict by running a minimum of 26 miles per day for 25 days - and finished his remarkable feat with a total of 685.1 miles in the bank!

Starting from a different Military barracks in the south each day, Brian dedicated every mile to each individual that lost their life during the conflict.

Before the challenge got underway, Brian hoped to raise £20,000 for Walking With The Wounded - but the current total currently stands at an incredible £158,000.
