Richard Harpham

Richard Harpham is one half of the leadership of the Big 5 Kayak Challenge. Its is amazing how an idea can develop to a fully blown serious expedition, from a nagging desire to paddle the Thames from source to sea combined with the infamous DW (Devizes to Westminster) Race to a fully blown serious expedition. Like most great endeavours, the thing is much bigger than one individual and with a great team in place the Big 5 is no exception. That classic phase “Why Not?!!” has been the standard response to Richard’s invitation to join the mad cap dream.

Richard Harpham is also the driving force and founder behind majorsporty,com, a sports and leisure community and can often be found outdoors. He will be either hanging halfway up a rock face, walking in the hills and mountains, on a bike or canoeing in the middle of winter. Well he does claim to be Scottish! In fact if you stop him for five minutes he will be able to relate (at some length) a story about most sports and his attempts at them. Richard is very close to everyone here in the Bureau.

Something of a Rugby gypsy, Richard Harpham has played Rugby around the world in places as wide and varied as Bedford, Sweden, New Zealand and various places in the USA. An unfortunate dislocation of his knee last year has finally forced him to hang up (not chuck out!!) his boots.
