My name is Jason Thomas, I work as a Quality Control technician for a food company
My favourite part about being on the Safety Team is seeing the faces on so many different people when they are taking part on these events, some are so determined to complete the challenges, some don't know whether to laugh or cry, and then the sheer joy when they have all completed the event.
My advice to any one who is about to take part on any walking challenge is to make sure that they have proper walking boots that are broke in to that person, and of course where possible do some training before entering.
Our UK treks and challenges couldn’t go ahead without our invaluable safety team and qualified mountain leaders. Each and every one of them retain expert knowledge, understanding and a passion for outdoor pursuits and the mountains we climb. They are on hand to ensure the wellbeing of our participants, navigating them through each trek safely and providing words of encouragement to help everyone complete their challenge.
