However, a suggested donation of £5.00 per person would be greatly appreciated. All proceeds raised from the walk will be donated to “Heartbeat For Everest” supporting the British Heart Foundation & The Himalayan Trust UK.
In order to raise much needed funds for both the British Heart Foundation and the Himalayan Trust UK Steve has set himself the challenge to compete in the The Hillary Tenzing Everest Marathon on the 29th May 2016
The World’s Highest Marathon – The World’s Toughest Race
The marathon starts at Mt. Everest Base Camp (17,598ft) just beneath the Khumbu Icefall region finishing 26.2 miles later in Namche Bazaar (11,306ft). Running through awe-inspiring surroundings and in the midsts of imposing mountains in the heart of the Himalaya, this is the highest marathon in the world.
Upon completing this epic challenge Steve will become the first person to do so with a Pacemaker!
