Hill feat news – Lex is Back
“The challenge is simple, starting June 4th 2018, tackling the Wrekin a minimum of three times a night (1335 feet) every night for three months which equates climbing Snowdon each day (3,560) and Everest each week (29,030).
A second year for this particular challenge, 2018’s will be longer and more enduring than 2017’s. This time, an additional four weeks than last year’s challenge to hopefully double both the money raise and the overall steps.
2017 saw 250 ascents recorded, without missing a day that totalled 1,477,016 steps by the end of the challenge.
This year Lex is hoping to break the two million steps barrier and 300 ascents.
Weather and health (both physical and mental) permitting, he is aiming to finish on a 12 x 12 marathon (12 ascents in under 12 hours) on either the Saturday or Sunday.”
