Haroon Mota

Haroon is an adventure and thrill seeking athlete who has for over a decade been setting himself ambitious fundraising challenges; running multi marathons and climbing mountains around the world, raising millions of pounds for charity and inspiring so many from the South Asian & Muslim Communities to follow in his footsteps.


Haroon has a strong passion for increasing diversity and inclusion in outdoor fitness, which led him to create the Active Inclusion Network and launching projects such as Muslim Hikers, which has rapidly grown to become the largest community in the world for Muslim interested in the outdoors. The organisation now hosts an extensive monthly hiking programme recognized to be the largest known regular walking events in the Country; promoting safety, confidence and awareness of the outdoors.
