Adventurer, author and keynote speaker.

“My aim this year is to do the smallest adventures I’ve ever done. I’m going right back to basics – which is sort of linked to the point of the YHA Adventure Effect – revisiting things that I take for granted. My first one was to take a camping stove up a hill and have a cup of tea.”

Jenny Tough

Adventurer, writer and speaker

“In 2019 I am going to attempt to tick off two mountain ranges in my global challenge to run solo and unsupported across a mountain range on every continent: New Zealand’s Southern Alps will be my fourth continent, Oceania, and the Caucasus in Europe will be my fifth.”

Alex Staniforth

Adventurer and YHA Ambassador

“In 2019 I’ll be busy releasing my new book but I’d love to return to Cornwall, explore the Northumberland hills and the Pennines in my running shoes! Along the way I’m hoping to create opportunities to help others with their mental health through outdoors experiences, too.”

Alan Hinkes OBE

Mountaineer and YHA Ambassador

“This year I’m looking forward to enjoying walking, scrambling and rock-climbing, as well as ice-climbing if there’s a freeze in the fells. My plan is to finish the Wainwrights, possibly do the Coast to Coast Way too. YHA will feature in my challenges and I’d hope to visit some new locations.”
