Uphill (Ascent) Solo Sled-pull 116-miles:

By Shane Forrester

30-degrees heat London:

This summer trek is very different from the winter trek....the heat/humidity always can be difficult.The desert headress (damp cotton) really helps.

Ascent begins 48-hours........

🚁🆘Final preparations underway......feeling happy & well,really looking forward to this.       Checking ropes,carabina’s,tyres & equipment.......must sleep,eat & drink well now....lots of stretching (yoga) as usual.....simply want to thank all the trauma paramedics/doctors for there amazing critical care.🚁

I'm supporting London's Air Ambulance Charity

Early morning 21st June 2021... I start to trek uphill in London’s Richmond Park (A London location part of London’s air ambulance’s work map) It would be so very appreciated if you could with me,help London’s Air Ambulance to raise vital funds & awareness for the emergency trauma procedures & care they give when needed.     I will trek everyday,up & down the big hill pulling the sled (tyres) & heavy backpack until 116-miles completed.Many many thanks.Shane.

Thank you to my Sponsors
