An evening with Jordan Wylie

Growing up on the largest council estate in the UK, Jordan left school early with no qualifications to his name but took the life-changing decision to join the British Army at 16 years old. 

Jordan has since gone on to successfully complete numerous major charity expeditions, including the highly publicised Running Dangerously, which saw him run through Afghanistan, Iraq and Somalia, and Barefoot Warrior which involved climbing Mt Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain, completely barefoot! He has raised over a million pounds for charity and some of his expeditions have been made into documentaries on Sky TV.
