Richard Parks: A World First

6 months, 11 days, 7 hours and 53 minutes. That’s how long it took for Richard Parks to complete his incredible 737 Challenge as he summited the final leg, Russia’s Mount Elbrus, this morning.

Richard Parks Completes 737 Challenge

Speaking from the summit, Richard said he was entirely drained of energy and numb with emotion in completing a remarkable world record that only 5 weeks ago looked unlikely after suffering Grade 2 frostbite whilst conquering Mount Everest.

Raising funds for Marie Curie, there will be much written about Richard over the coming weeks but having worked with Rich since the Challenge’s inception almost 2 years ago we’d like to be the first to extend our congratulations to Rich and everyone involved in the 737 Challenge… it’s been emotional!
