Date published: 15 June 2022


Inspirational teacher Steve Hill has been sharing pictures following his record-breaking trip to Uganda.

The Shaw school teacher has become the only person to run FIVE Ugandan Marathons.

The Ugandan Marathon is like no other, as the route takes runners up and down hills, through rolling countryside terrain, and stunning scenery.

Steve says the marathon is a unique experience.  

"So many amazing people gathered together early on race day morning all with their own stories and motivations but united in wanting to make a difference.

"As the race started I didn’t quite know what to expect – but I was in for a real treat. Running through villages with children cheering, singing and dancing along the course. High fives galore, thumbs up and the biggest smiles imaginable around every corner!"

The trip has also enabled Steve get involved with a number of community projects, as well as checking in on projects that the Steve Hill Charitable Foundation has been funding since 2019.

As well as fundraising, and inspiring the children at St Joseph's RC Primary School in Shaw, Steve has been busy writing a book about his adventures.

The new book - 'What's Next Sir?' - will be available from 24 June.

"In the book, I share my adventures over the past few years and the things I have learned along the way." says Steve.   "Things about about life, about self-doubt, about overcoming challenges and about growth, but above all, about following your dreams."

The book can be pre-ordered now, online at Troubador, Amazon, Waterstones, WH Smith or from any bookstore.

A percentage of each book sale will go to charity.
