Walking the West Highland Way

Lincs Inspire Fitness Supervisor set to embark upon 96-mile walking challenge to raise money in aid of new accessible gym equipment.

Later in May, Kieran Hough, who works at Grimsby Health & Wellbeing Centre, will be swapping the treadmill for the trails as he embarks upon an epic adventure.

Over the course of eight days, the challenge will see Kieran and friend Damien Capes traverse the varied terrain from Milngavie to Fort William, a total of 96 miles (154km). The final day will see them tackle the gruelling ascent of the highest mountain in Scotland, Ben Nevis with a summit of 1345m above sea level.

By completing the challenge, the pair hope to raise funds for a specialist all-inclusive hand bike for the gym at Grimsby Health & Wellbeing Centre. Helping people with long term health conditions and disabilities to keep active is a cause that Kieran is particularly passionate about.

For as long as I’ve been in the fitness industry, there’s always been a need for inclusivity in both sport and exercise. Move forward fifteen years into my career and I now look after the area’s biggest inclusive exercise centre (Grimsby Health & Wellbeing Centre). For me, this event is about raising much needed funds for additional exercise equipment to enhance what we already offer.


The West Highland Way is one of three fundraising challenges that Kieran is taking on in 2024. In June he will tackle the Fan Dance, a thirteen-mile SAS military walk. Then later in the year, he will cycle the Way of the Roses, 170 miles from Morecambe Bay to Bridlington.

Members and friends wishing to sponsor Kieran, can do so by donating at reception of Grimsby Health and Wellbeing Centre. We wish Kieran the best of luck!
