This spring, over just 15 days, our director of walking, Simon Barnett, is attempting to climb all 214 Wainwright fells in one continuous round as his spring holiday.

That’s a staggering 326 miles, with over 35,000 metres of ascent across challenging and rocky terrain.Whilst many spend a lifetime ‘peak bagging’ the Wainwrights, Simon’s round of the fells will mean that by the end he’ll have completed over 12 marathons in a fortnight, and climbed nearly four times the height of Everest!

Simon will be sharing his thoughts and photos with us too, so make sure you check out social media for up to date information.

But why is he doing it?

For the love of the outdoors! Simon said:

'I care passionately about walkers’ rights and believe strongly in the joys and benefits of walking to all - whether you're taking a short stroll or climbing mountains. This challenge is my holiday, but along the way I want raise awareness to the issues facing walkers and hopefully I can inspire a few people to take on their own personal Everest.'

Simon is fundraising through JustGiving.
