James Forrest decided to take the National Three Peaks Challenge and expand upon it … instead of the usual car journeys between the peaks (usually around 11 hours of driving), he will walk between the peaks. That’s almost 500 miles of walking!
In 2017 he hiked up all 446 ‘Nuttalls’ in England and Wales; in 2018 he bagged the 273 Irish ‘Vandeleur-Lynams’; and in 2019 he finished with all 282 ‘Munros’ in Scotland.
James is the award-winning author of Mountain Man: 446 Mountains. Six Months. One record-breaking adventure, and in 2020 he set a new record for a self-supported completion of all 214 Wainwrights in 14 days and 11 hours.
His book is a really absorbing read and you can buy it from Amazon or from his website link below.
I really liked Lucho’s philosophy, the idea of being fuelled by natural food during exercise and cut plastic packaging as much as possible, that was what caught my attention straight away. Then I tried them and I was sold! Every race I did, was fuelled by Lucho Dillitos and I really hope we get to race this year again.

To me the purpose of what I do goes beyond the wins and podiums; a result is also defined by the lives our team changes whilst showing what's possible with diabetes. I work every day in the hope of making one more person affected by diabetes, smile more, hope more and dream bigger.
Diabetes doesn't define me but what I do with it does.
In 2019 I sold my custom frame brand WyndyMilla to focus on fresh new adventurous ways of challenging and disrupting the status quo in cycling (more on that soon).
Adventures though are nothing without fuel, and now mine is Columbian super fruit from fellow challenger/disruptors Lucho Dillitos - how freakin’ cool is that?
Nowadays you're most likely to find her working her way through one of the 100 climbs she has set herself. Throughout the summer, it's not uncommon for her to be chasing 3, 4 or even more climbs in a day - always with a Lucho in tow, of course!
