Sir Ranulph was born in the UK in 1944 and brought up in South Africa before returning to the UK and attending Eton College. He failed his A Levels and joined the SAS, becoming the youngest captain in the British army. In 1970 he married his childhood sweetheart and they launched some record-breaking expeditions, including being the first team to reach both Poles, cross Antarctic and Arctic Ocean, circumnavigate the world along its polar axis and much more. He became the oldest Briton to ever summit Everest in May 2009, when he also raised over ?6.2m for Marie Curie. This represents a rare opportunity to listen to the most intrepid of explorers, Sir Ranulph Fiennes as he speaks in support of the Atlantic Calling rowing challenge. During his 40-year career, Sir Ranulph Fiennes has led more than 30 expeditions and is the holder of several endurance records. He completed a 52,000 mile Transglobe overland expedition, and was the first person to visit both the North and South poles by surface means as well as becoming the first person with Mike Stroud to cross Antarctica on foot and unsupported. In 2003, four months after having a triple heart bypass operation, he ran seven marathons in seven days on seven continents. In May 2009, at the age of 65 he became the oldest Britain to reach the summit of Everest. An evening with Sir Ranulph Fiennes will guarantee to inspire and motivate, demonstrating what can be achieved through the power of human determination and reaching beyond the limits.Performers Ranulph Fiennes.
