He's only gone and done it! The highest mountains in Wales, England and Scotland didn’t stop him. Extreme exhaustion didn’t overcome him. The ‘Beast from the East’ and an unprecedented red weather warning… Okay, they temporarily halted Greg James’ progress, but he came back and finished what he started, completing Radio 1’s Gregathon: Pedal to the Peaks for Sport Relief.
So far Greg has raised:
THE RETURN - DAY ONE
DAY 1: Snowdon and cycle to Daresbury - COMPLETE
DAY 2: Cycle from Daresbury to Nether Wasdale - COMPLETE
DAY 3: Cycle 5 miles, then climb Scafell Pike, then cycle to Abbington - COMPLETE
DAY 4: Cycle from Abbington to Fort William - COMPLETE
DAY 5: Climb Ben Nevis - COMPLETE
Greg is attempting to climb the highest mountains in Wales, England and Scotland.
He's estimated to burn around 10,000 calories a DAY – four times the average amount for an adult man!
Winds get up to 65mph on Ben Nevis – at 45mph some people have to crawl, not walk…
Greg has had to undergo specialist winter mountaineering training before being allowed to even consider climbing in the icy conditions!
