Mike Boswell from Plastribution and Jeremy Webster of Marbles PR take on the English Highpointer Challenge 2024

Mike Boswell, from Plastribution, the UK’s leading polymer distributor, together with Jeremy Webster, of marketing communications firm, Marbles PR, plan to visit the highest point of every single English county non-stop from 15th – 20th June 2024.

Known as the English Highpointer Challenge 2024, the event takes its inspiration from the US-Colorado-based Highpointers Club, whose mission is to promote climbing to the highest point in each of the 50 states in the USA.

Along with logistical and driving support from the third member of the team – ‘man with a campervan’ John Oakley – the challenge involves walking day and night for 58 hours, covering 178km and travelling for 55 hours from county to county.

Starting and finishing on England’s highest mountain Scafell Pike, the pair are raising funds for Mountain Rescue and Air Ambulance charities.

You can support the event in several ways:


To become one of the main sponsors for the Highpointer Challenge, a suggested donation of between £1000-£2000 would be ideal.

Main sponsors will benefit from:
– Having their logo on the event website –
– An introduction via a blog on the website
– Having their logo visible on all marketing
collateral/van decals/team technical wear
– ‘Main Sponsor’ social media posts
– A Highpointer Challenge ‘Main Sponsor’ logo to share on company social media platforms

To sponsor a county high-top, donations are available as follows:
• Gold sponsor – £500
• Silver sponsor – £250
• Bronze sponsor – £100

High-top sponsors will benefit from:
– Evidence photo with sponsors’ logos at the summit of sponsored high-top
