In October 2020, we spoke with serving soldier, Paul Minter who after 18 years of active service; including 5 front line tours of Iraq and Afghanistan during which he was blown up twice; Paul was being medically discharged suffering from severe symptoms of PTSD including depression, paranoia and anxiety.
Back then Paul was planning his military retreat. Not on the battlefield, but a place of safety and sanctuary for both serving and ex-military to treat their mental health.
The planning has become reality and with his nee charity http://www.head-up.org.uk established he just needs to raise £3 Million to fund the retreat.
So Paul has decided to run the UK coastline. A mere 5800 miles! Or 191 marathons!! Or if you’re a fit watch wearer, 9,176,000 steps!!!
Hear about the run and the reasons behind The Retreat
