SIR Ranulph Fiennes hailed by the Guinness Book of Records as 'the world's greatest living explorer' is sharing his intriguing life story.

The adventurer will be talking about his record-breaking achievements in a gripping talk entitled 'Living Dangerously' at The Grange Theatre in Hartford on Friday, March 6.

The intrepid explorer, now 75, is interrupting his sell out tour to help a team of Grange students raise money for their 2021 expedition to Nepal.

Pupils will be volunteering with a local charity to help rebuild schools and buildings damaged by an earthquake and the more recent monsoons.

Sir Ranulph has spent his life in pursuit of extreme adventure, inspiring generations as he risked life and limb in some of the most inhospitable terrain completing the most ambitious private expeditions ever undertaken.

With incredible stamina, painstaking planning and dogged determination he has conquered countless goals many thought impossible.

Even when he caught frostbite in his left hand in the North Pole, he refused to let the injury hold him back and continued to push endurance to the limits.

Sir Ranulph Fiennes will be talking about his pioneering exploits

Amongst his many record-breaking achievements, he was the first to reach both the North and South Pole, completing the Transglobe Expedition, the first pole-to-pole challenge using only surface transportation.

Sir Ranulph's extraordinary adventures include being first to cross the Antarctic and Arctic Ocean and the first to circumnavigate the world along its polar axis.

The pioneer ran seven marathons in seven days in seven countries, after having a heart attack only four months before.

The former SAS soldier climbed Everest when he was 65.

Both light-hearted and strikingly poignant, Living Dangerously offers a personal journey through Sir Ranulph’s life, spanning his early childhood and school misdemeanors, his army life and the Trans-globe Expedition.

Despite racking up so many perilous accomplishments, Sir Ranulph is still active and ambitious.

His current goal, the Global Reach Challenge, is to become the first person in the world to cross both polar ice caps and climb the highest mountain on each of the seven continents.

All proceeds from the evening will help fund the Grange expedition and support the work the students will be undertaking and the communities in Nepal.
