Ian Hyder, joint managing director of Max Publishing and The Licensing Awards, has announced plans to run the London Marathon April 21 to raise funds for the licensing industry charity The Light Fund, which supports the U.K.’s Children’s Trust Hospital.
"In a moment of madness (very possibly the result of a mid-life crisis) I decided to run the London Marathon and am now deep into my training, which is leading to pain beyond imagining and problems with muscles I didn’t even know I had,” says Hyder. “However it’s all for a fantastic cause and although I can’t say I will be troubling the leaders when race day comes, I can promise that I will be doing everything necessary to make sure I cross that finish line. I’m hoping that everybody in licensing will want to get behind me and give what they can to help raise a whole heap of cash for The Light Fund.”
