My name is Guy, I’m not an athlete or an adventurer, I’m just an ordinary man who believes that by challenging ourselves we can change the world – I got tired of talking about doing it and used a crossroads in my life to start being the change I wanted to see in the world.

As Miles for Wishes I’ve raised approximately £6,000 for Make-A-Wish UK by taking on some incredible challenges since taking up running and cycling in 2017. I’ve climbed the National Three Peaks solo, cycled from John O’Groats to Land’s End solo in 9 days, cycled the National Three Peaks in 3 days solo and I’ve run 7 ultra-marathons (from Liverpool to Reading) in 7 consecutive days. On the 24 May 2019 I set the record for the fastest solo cycle of the Welsh Three Peaks challenge.

Now, as Guy Stapleford Ultra, I’m on the road to taking on the toughest bicycle race in the world Race Across America in 2022.

This website is about documenting the journey – the highs, the lows, the people, the places and the things that matter most to me.

Let’s do something amazing together!
