Ash Dykes
Adventurer / Extreme Athlete

Home Country: United Kingdom

Ash Dykes became the first person to walk across Mongolia solo and unsupported in 2014. He achieved a distance of over 1,500 miles in 78 days, carrying everything he needed in order to survive. In 2016, he broke another world record by becoming the first person to walk through Madagascar, whilst summiting the highest mountains. The 1,600 miles took him 155 days to complete and forced him to use up all his physical and mental reserves when he contracted the deadliest form of Malaria.

From July 2018, Ash Dykes’ new expedition will take him along the Yangtze River. He will be the first to walk the 4,000 miles, from the freezing temperatures of the Jianggendiru Glacier on the Tibetan Plateau to the more tropical environment of its delta near Shanghai. The 1 year expedition is set to be highly intense.
