Will Renwick

You won't find many other 27 year-olds with more miles under their belt than OM's editor Will Renwick. He's hiked the length of Spain and the Italian Dolomites, and he's also walked coast-to-coast across Scotland on the TGO Challenge. But it's his homeland of Wales that Will does most of his hiking, in fact for a number of years he held the title of 'the youngest perimeteer of Wales' after walking the Wales Coast Path and Offa's Dyke Path in one big trek at the age of 23. His most recent adventure was a 17-day hike along Wales's mountainous spine on the Cambrian Way which you can read about in some of his posts on the site. When he's not walking for weeks on end, Will enjoys quick trips for some gear testing in the Brecon Beacons with his dog Teilo.
