My guest today is Laurie Crayston. Laurie is the founder of Ascendany Apparel - the clothing brand for adventurers; born in 2015 out of a love for the landscapes of the English Lake District. Earlier this year he attempted the ultimate Cumbrian challenge; a continuous, single round of the Wainwrights. That’s roughly 320 miles, 214 summits and over 35,000 metres of ascent. Only four people had ever completed it in a continuous single round; and Laurie was attempting to do it completely on his own without any external support. This is a really fascinating insight into what it takes to tackle something like this on your own and the impact it has on your mind and body.
