His STORY

the ultimate british adventure

The goal is simple, to have the ultimate British Adventure.

 

To embark on the most incredible journey possible from the most extreme points of the United Kingdom, taking anything but the quickest route. Aaron will be visiting the most dramatic landscapes possible, and undertaking a selection of adventures long the way. Connecting these, he'll be reliant on his own legs to propel him along the mostly off-road 2500km route.

Aaron was lucky enough to grow up in the Lake District, climbing his first Cumbrian fells from as young as 4 years old. Since then, he’s taken his love for the mountains global, until recently of course. 

 

He works as an adventure photographer based between his home in London and the Alps. Aaron has successfully completed a variety of endurance challenges including a World Series Adventure race, Evergreen Ironman distance Alpine triathlon, a multitude of 4000 and 5000m peaks, and has broken a cycling world record. He is now looking to combine his multidiscpline talents into the ultimate adventure trip closer to home.
