22–23 Mar 2025 244 days to go! #GetOutside

Ben Turner

I am an extreme adventure athlete chasing the abnormal goals, from climbing a gym rope over 700 times for the Three Peaks Rope Climb, to cycling over 3000km around Iceland. I am a certified nutritionist and adventure athlete, passionate for sharing opportunities for young people to Get Outside, get involved in the World and make a difference with their futures. I use my extreme adventures to inspire, my knowledge and teachings to educate and my message to influence an evidence based approach.
Previously I have run 16 marathons in 16 days in all 15 national parks in the UK and the National Park City of London, to raise awareness of the projects that each national park has launched to get more people outside with more interaction and education. I have also competed in many ultra marathons while carrying a 25kg rucksack to inform my training philosophies and teachings, ensuring that I lead by example in an evidence based and experience led approach to helping people achieve.
As an Ordnance Survey Get Outside Champion, I feel very lucky to be able to share my message and engage with so many people in amazing projects and opportunities.
I am always hungry to get involved, confident with people and proud to represent where I have the opportunity and a shared message.
