Mike Stevenson

Ultra Runner / ADVENTURER & Bolton Mountain Rescue

Mike’s interest in the outdoors started at an early age spending his formative years hiking, kayaking and mountain biking in his native Lancashire & Cumbria. Mike has completed numerous endurance challenges such as the UK’s famous AW Coast to Coast route, MONTANE® Spine® Race and MONTANE® Lakeland 100.

His experience of extreme cold travel started in Arctic Lapland, Sweden. An environment in which he excelled and an experience which broadened his horizons. Baikal’s record crossing was his first major cold weather expedition, but certainly not his last.

Mike has ambitions of reaching the Polar Regions including the Geographic Poles. His dream is to complete an unsupported crossing of Antarctica via the pole.

Despite all the endurance challenges and accomplishments he still describes his step into rehab as his toughest challenge. His continued clean and sober life his greatest achievement. He has been linked to a number of voluntary and charitable organisations such as Wigan Youth Zone, Amy Winehouse Foundation and Bolton Mountain Rescue, providing his time, help and support.

Mike is an active member of Bolton Mountain Rescue where he is an operational team member with nearly 3 years of service.
