After much deliberation, the long-awaited winners from our Microadventure competition are named and famed below.

A huge thanks to everyone who took part and we hope you had as much fun as we did.

Microadventures let anyone plunge into a world of cheap Credit Crunch adventures. Adventures that are close to home, which are fun, affordable, easy to organise and designed to get you doing and experiencing things that would normally pass you by.

This competition was a great reason for howies to invite Alastair Humphreys up for a Microadventure of our own and if you missed it, the video is here.

We asked you to get out there and do your own Microavdenture and send us your story. For us, these four stories really captured the spirit of Adventure and we've thrown in an honorable mention to the good folk in Japan for their unique video approach.

Enjoy - in no particular order:


Tom Allen - Zone 1 Microadventure


Luke & Brooke - London to Lewes


Simon Edwards - South Downs


Ariel & Emma - Belfast

Runner Up

Rob Thomson & Co - Sapporo, Japan
