Richard Parks spent thirteen years as a professional rugby player, representing Wales at international level, before his career was cut short by injury in 2009. With no prospect of a return to rugby Richard has described how he struggled in “one of the darkest places I’d been to”.
Gradually – and with a bit of inspiration from Ranulph Fiennes - Richard began to find that adventure and exploration, and all the challenges that come with it, could offer him a new focus. Richard is now a well-known TV presenter and sports ambassador having completed a range of endurance challenges around the world – from adventures close to home in his popular BBC series “Extreme Wales” to reaching all 7 Summits and both poles in just 7 months during his “737 Challenge”.
Join us as Richard takes us on his personal journey, from his challenging lows to the summits of peaks around the world.
