Acuity’s VFM expert Steve Smedley is taking part in the hardest multi-day mountain endurance race in the world. On five consecutive days he’ll cover 200 miles with 51,000 ft ascent (equivalent to Everest + Kilimanjaro + Cat Bells) over difficult terrain. The route follows the mountainous spine of Wales from Conwy in the north to Llandeilo in the south and knocks off 13 of the Welsh 3,000 footers on day 1 alone, and then the Moelwyns, Rhinogs, Cadair Idris, the Tarrans, Pumlumon, Drygarn and Black Mountains.

Steve is raising cash for the brilliant stuff Golden Lane Housing does in supporting the housing needs of people with learning disabilities across England and Wales.
