3PeAksRun is a Winner! – Next Adventure Challenge 2017

Woohoo.. i am totally thrilled that my little run was deemed interesting/ insane enough (delete as applicable) to be chosen as one of the 2017 Next Challenge Grant winners. This is a fantastic initiative by award winning adventurer and Guinness World Record holder Tim Moss who has completed many expeditions from mountaineering to round the world cycling.

The 3PeAksRun is entirely funded by myself so this grant is really helping me to meet some of those costs. I was already absolutely ecstatic to make it to the shortlist and enjoying a rucksack load of information from Tims’ website http://www.thenextchallenge.org aimed at encouraging people to live life more adventurously. You can find help, advice and articles on now to plan your next adventure whether it is a challenge of expedition proportions or taking the kids on their first wild camp. Want to get a comparison or review of the best camping mats or stoves? Or why merino wool is the best fabric choice if you want to avoid being too smelly on your adventure!?

Now in its third year the Next Challenge Grant is funded by Tim himself and other well known adventurers – big shout out to @AnnaMcNuff , without whom i wouldn’t even have been aware of this grant and to @EliseCDowning who has also been a big inspiration behind my 3PeAksRun! There is also a crowdfunding aspect with great support from the public making small £3 donations to help others realise their dreams. Huge huge thanks to everyone involved in supporting this grant!
