Greg James Sport Relief challenge: DJ returning to Ben Nevis

Wednesday 14th March 2018

Greg James is returning to the place where his Sport Relief challenge was called off two weeks ago.

The Radio 1 DJ was forced to stop his Pedal to the Peaks challenge – the ‘Gregathlon’ – because of extreme weather.

The challenge was to climb three of the highest mountains in the UK and cycle the distances between them.

Greg will head back to the same place where the challenge was abandoned, and climb Ben Nevis.

Despite the challenging weather conditions, Greg managed to climb to the top of Mount Snowdon and Scafell Pike, and cycled in between each one.

He raised £703,156 for Sport Relief in just five days.

The money will be used to help break the stigma around mental health and make sure that support is available for those experiencing mental health issues where they most need it.
