Tri4Life Everest summit challenge


In May 2022 a group of lifelong friends from Wirral will be retracing the famous steps of George Mallory in a centenary celebration of the 1922 British Mount Everest expedition. This was a wildly ambitious mountaineering expedition, the first with the express aim of ascending Mount Everest.

The friends from diverse backgrounds came together as Tri4Life, a Wirral based charitable enterprise back in 2002. Brought together in remembrance, friendship and a collective love of adventure and physical endeavour, the group raises funds to support charities close to their hearts and promotes active, healthy lifestyles to today's youth.

Martin Pritchard- Howarth, a consultant Geriatrician at Wirral University Teaching Hospital (WUTH) and Tri4Life member said;

“As young boys we ran and played in the same streets as our childhood Everest Heroes, Mallory and Irvine who lived in Birkenhead. It will be a huge honour to follow in their footsteps exactly one hundred years since their pioneering endeavour. We have been seeking the next challenge to mark our 20th anniversary and, given Mallory and Irvine's local Wirral connections and the approaching Centenary of their fateful journey, have settled upon this attempt to scale Everest!”

This is a challenge that they are not underestimating. Under the guidance of Adventure Peaks in Ambleside they have undertaken a 3 year training program to acquire the necessary climbing skills, expertise and fitness to complete the challenge.

Martin continued:

“None of us are from a climbing background, many of us are above the age of 50, but all of us have a drive and passion to inspire others and raise money for good causes along the way. We all hope that this effort will massively boost the funds of our chosen charities, which are CAN (Community Action Nepal) and the local Wirral (WUTH) and Countess of Chester Hospital charities.”


Victoria Burrows, Head of Fundraising at WUTH and WUTH Charity said:

“ Tri4Life is an amazing group of fundraisers, a real force for good. We are so grateful that they have chosen WUTH Charity to benefit from their fundraising. They can be sure that the funds their supporters donate will be used make a real difference by helping us reach our goal of raising £1.5million for our Tiny Stars Neonatal appeal. We wish them every success in their challenge to reach the top of the world.”
