It all started in 2012 when Miles for Men's amazing founder Micky Day founded the 5k run in memory of his father Michael Day senior, who died aged 68 after a one-year battle with throat cancer. Since then, thousands of runners have turned out year after year to support an incredible cause which has so far raised more than £300,000.

For the last seven years, you have proved it by tackling five kilometres of running – and walking – in aid of charity.

Miles For Men has become a Hartlepool phenomenon. You’ve run it in memory of loved ones, you’ve done it because you’ve beaten cancer, and you’ve done it to help others facing their own fights for life.

You’ve done it dressed as chickens, as Batman, Spiderman, the Hulk, and much more besides.

And now, with this year’s Miles For Men – and Walk For Women event – just days away, here’s a reminder of how fantastic you have been over the years.
