Congratulations to the winner of the Berghaus Adventure Challenge Sophie Beaney.
In April 2013, Sophie will be embarking upon a long-distance hike called the Pacific Crest Trail. This is a 4,200km multi-terrain trail that starts at the Mexican border and finishes at the Canadian border.
Sophie’s reaction to our email informing her she had won is below:
“The continual refreshing of the Berghaus Adventure Challenge shortlist page; the relentless harassment of friends and strangers; the nervousness and that terrifying last ten minutes of the online vote were probably more gruelling than anything a hike from Mexico to Canada could offer! But the joy and relief that come with winning made it all worthwhile. I could not be more grateful to everyone that voted (and also apologetic for being so annoying and persistent) and to Berghaus for offering people the chance to be able to win funding towards their adventures.
I would also like to wish the One Steppe Ahead team and Mark (you were a terrifying contender) all the best for their expeditions”.
