Summary
Richard Parks has what must be one of contemporary sport's most extraordinary and inspirational stories. Soon after he turned 30, the professional career in rugby that had been his life for over a decade was cut short by injury, leaving him faced with an uncertain future. But unlike many other young athletes, Richard decided to tackle his fears, anxiety and depression head on, taking inspiration from Ranulph Fiennes and a line from his grandmother's eulogy - 'The horizon is only the limit of our sight' and setting out on challenges that have become part of his everyday life. Richard created history with his first endeavour - the 737 Challenge - by becoming the first person to conquer the highest mountain on each of the world's continents and venture to both the North and South Poles within seven months. 'Beyond the Horizon' is an inspiring story for armchair adventurers, extreme sports and mountaineering fans alike
