A few years ago Si spent a year and a half running from Sheffield to central Turkey with his loyal trailer Gromit. This was partly to help him recuperate from a motorbike accident, partly to raise funds for Alzheimer’s Society but mostly to fulfill his lifetime’s ambition to climb the world’s most expensive mountain.

The big plan, was to run to Nepal… and it turned out to be quite an adventure.

However like all the best made plans, circumstance took over and for family and financial reasons he was reluctantly forced to break the trip at the halfway point of 3,500 miles. You can read about running to Everest on his blog the road of many colours.

He still plans to finish. The mountain isn’t going anywhere… but the clock is ticking.
