Ash Dykes. Explorer/Extreme Athlete, 2x World First Record Holder, Motivational Speaker, Expedition Leader, Author and Ambassador. A man who sets his limits beyond what most would see possible. Multiple award winner Ash Dykes is currently undergoing his biggest mission to date, Mission Yangtze.

The longest river in the world to flow through a single country, its length has never been walked. Until now. In 2018 Ash will attempt his greatest expedition yet, as he walks from the Yangtze’s source, of the Jianggendiru Glacier on the Tibetan Plateau, to its delta near Shanghai, where it meets the East China Sea. Ash will face many trials, starting with freezing temperatures in the West, which will break into a more tropical environment to the East.
