Award-winning Alan Hinkes

By Alan Hinkes

We were thrilled to hear that Alan Hinkes' 8000m won the Outdoor Book of the Year in the TGO Awards. It was voted for by the general public so thank you if you helped it to happen. Over 10,000 people voted in the awards which featured best innovation, best blog, best pub and outdoor personality of the year.

The big reveal of the winners took place on the 19th November in a ceremony (and party) whilst people were arriving in Kendal for the Kendal Mountain Festival. If you attended the festival you may have seen Alan proudly signing copies of his book for pleased customers at our stall in the Basecamp Marquee.
