Join adventurer on his next marathon challenge in the Himalayas
HE MAY have conquered Everest, but intrepid adventurer John Pomfret says his next challenge will be his toughest yet.
John, from Cleethorpes – who scaled the world’s highest peak in 2006 – is heading back to Nepal, this time for a gruelling marathon across the foothills of the Himalayas... and he wants you to join him.
John, of Davenport Drive, is now in training for the Tenzing-Hillary Marathon, named in honour of the first people to conquer Everest.
He is planning to run it in aid of the Walking With The Wounded, a charity which funds the re-training and re-education of wounded servicemen and women to help them find long-term employment.

But never one to do things by halves, John will warm up for the challenge by embarking on an eight-day trek, which will include climbing three big peaks in the region.
Four other locals – Paul Hansen and Andy Middleditch, of Cleethorpes, and Matt Zwart and George Johnson, of Grimsby – have already signed up, and John is seeking more volunteers to join him for the experience of a lifetime.
He said: “I’m probably more worried about doing the Everest Marathon than doing the climb. It’s going to be tough.”
The cost of the trip will be about £2,000 plus flights. If you are interested in joining the expedition, you can e-mail email@example.com
