Guest Speaker – William Robinson

William RobinsonWith the support of NorthFace, Styrkr, Friction Collective, Left Handed Giant and Tenzing, William Robinson ran 200 miles around Bristol Queen Square on a 500m loop. starting on Thursday 5th October 2023.

Why?  “Six years ago, at the age of 25, my friend Will suffered a life changing climbing accident as he was climbing the Avon Gorge. The rock he was climbing came away from the cliff and he fell 50 metres to the bottom resulting in having both legs amputated and being paralysed from the waist down. He was hospitalised for 2 years and is now wheelchair dependent. Despite putting on a brave face, his recovery is still an ongoing challenge with many ups and downs that has left him feeling isolated.

Will has always been sociable, funny and adventurous. He is a fanatical climber, mountain biker and an all-round outdoorsman. Currently the outside life he used to live is completely inaccessible. Using this run, money raised wento towards helping him get back to doing the things he loves. The Bowhead Reach is an adaptive off-road e-bike which would give him the opportunity to get back into the mountains with friends and return to nature.”

William will have a short teaser video to screen about his run.
