This is 'No Ordinary Man'!

At dawn on Fathers' Day local Consultant, Steve Stanaway, will be setting off in his attempt to complete the Welsh 3000s. These are the 15 mountains in Wales with summits of over 3000ft in height and which can be 'conquered' together as part of a 24 mile hike/run preferably in less than 24 hours (or in Steve's case, less than 12 if all goes to plan).

The walk starts on the summit of Foel Fras and finishes on Snowdon where Steve will be met by his wife and youngest son in time for a cup of tea in the cafe before descending to Llanberis.

Steve, a father of 2 boys, is doing this to partially fulfil a personal ambition, adding this this classic 1 day challenge to his completion of the 'British 3 Peaks' and the 'English 4 Peaks', but, given the date of the attempt, to inspire folks to think about their own fathers whom it has been said are the people we possibly know the least about.

Refreshingly, Steve has resisted the temptation to open a 'Just Giving Page' for this endeavour but if anyone is suitably impressed by his efforts then perhaps they would want to make a donation to a charity of their choice that specialises in the physical or mental health of the male of the species — this places pressure on no-one, least of all Steve!!

This member of the Webteam, however, says dig deep, think about your fathers and make a donation to a male charity of your choice! And, just to contextualise, I include an image of Steve (back row, second from right) having conquered Mt Aconcagua, the highest mountain outside of Asia at 6,961m, and during which he raised £'000s for juvenile diabetes — this is no ordinary man!!
