What Is the Pacific Trail
The Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) is a [very] long-distance hiking trail inland from the west cost of the USA. It runs from the border with Mexico in the south (no wall yet) to the border with Canada in the north through California, Oregon, and Washington.
PCT Wikipedia Entry
Being 2659 miles long, and Ed having a life to get on with, he’s going to walk about 20-30 miles a day for however long it takes to cover the entire length of it.
The walk isn’t without risks, there have been a few people who have not survived it’s rigors in the past decade – but Ed assures us he’s ultra fit and I can certainly assure you he’s not daft.
d is 31 years old and lives and works in London. Originally from Cambridge he moved to London to study Geography at University where he met his wife Penny and their cats Rosie and Jim.
He loves physical challenges especially when in the great outdoors, and this has lead him to climb some of the highest mountains in Europe as well as trek hundreds of miles through the jungles of Central America on expeditions.
It is these experiences combined with his previous charity work for Youth2Youth and Battersea Befriending Network that provided him with the idea for a charity hike along the Pacific Crest Trail.
Delayed by a year following a knee injury, Ed is now fighting fit having comprehensively tested himself (and Penny) in the mountains of Nepal.
Without doubt his biggest challenge to date, he is hoping to use the adventure of hiking one of the world’s longest trails to raise vital funding and awareness for the issues that many young people face from homelessness situations.
When he isn’t outside or on a mountain you can find him at the Crossfit gym, playing the piano or reading.
