  • About the event

    I am attempting to break the Guinness World Record for Longest Barefoot Journey. Starting in Gibraltar I will walk 1,720 miles through Spain, France, Belgium and England.


    I am doing this to help raise funds for St Catherine’s Hospice. My Step-Dad, Simon was admitted to St Catherine's hospice back in 2015. I was working abroad in Gibraltar and was forced to get the train to Madrid, a plane to Brussels and another flight to Manchester! Thanks to unforeseen circumstances bad weather and bad luck. This was the quickest way for me to get back home and I will be re-creating this journey for the World Record attempt. 




    Why should you sponsor?


    GUARANTEED AUDIENCE - 2,500+ dedicated followers across social media with 40,000+ views on the training videos on YouTube 


    I’M A SAFE BET - Walked the length of Malta. Walked the breadth of Ireland. In training I’ve covered my barefoot target distance in a day/numerous times. Climbed England’s Tallest Mountain Barefoot, Scafell Pike. Climbed Wales’ Tallest Mountain Barefoot, Snowdon. Attempted a ‘greatest barefoot distance in 24hrs challenge’.

    I’ve also had the charity logo, for which I’m doing this challenge, tattooed across my feet... SAFE BET.


    GREAT VALUE FOR MONEY - - It will only get bigger - My training challenges have already seen me in the the local news after climbing both England and Wales’ tallest mountains barefoot... Check them out on YouTube.com/MrMatthewStrange

    My record attempt will be featured in the local and national news.

    St Catherine’s Hospice provided an exceptional level of genuine care and love throughout Simon’s stay. 

    Amazed by the fantastic work they do, I wanted to help raise funds for the Hospice so they can continue in the same vein.

    I’ve previously completed a skydive on their behalf and a few barefoot mountain climbs.. this is what we’ve been working towards!
