Widehorizons’ chair, John Russell, is attempting a solo, unaided walk of the UK South-West coastal path – a massive 1,008km – in less than 30 days during the month of May. This is the longest national trail in the UK and will require John to walk 25 miles every day!
Starting at Minehead in Somerset and finishing at Poole Harbour, Dorset, the total height climbed during the course of this walk will be 114,931ft – that’s four times the height of Mount Everest!
John’s walk is raising money for Widehorizons to provide more life-changing adventures to children at three South London primary schools: Brent Knoll, Downderry, and Watergate. He is aiming to raise a phenomenal £10,000!

John Russell comments:
“I am attempting a solo, unaided walk of the 1,008km UK South-West Coastal Path, the longest UK National Trail in less than 30 days during the month of May. I plan to walk over 25 miles a day for a month continuously!
I will be starting at Minehead in Somerset and finishing at Poole Harbour in Dorset. The total height climbed during the course of this walk is a massive 114, 931ft or just over 35,000metres – that’s four times the height of Everest!
