KATHMANDU: Former Richmond star Alex Rance has broken his silence to reveal what he plans to do now he’s got plenty of time on his hands following his shock AFL retirement.

And it turns out the Tigers champion is set to embark on a life-changing adventure to climb some of the highest peaks in the world.

“I have a pretty amazing adventure planned for Nepal in November,” Rance wrote on Instagram. “If you’re an adventurer and keen to challenge yourself and help other(s) achieve, I’d love you to join me. Spots are limited tho (sic).”

The trek, being run by Heath and Fitness Holidays and Kokoda Courage, will feature 20 adventurers trekking the Annapurna circuit in the Himalayas with the Richmond legend.

The Annapurna Circuit is one of the most famous treks in Nepal.

The news comes to a couple of weeks after it was revealed that Rance left a massive sum of money on the table when he walked away from Richmond and the AFL in December.

It was reported that Rance agreed to a settlement worth one-sixth of his $800,000-a-year salary — which was just two months of his deal for 2020 — to free up $1.4 million in the Tigers’ salary cap for this year and next.

Rance stunned the footy world a couple of months ago when he announced his retirement at the age of 30, citing family reasons and his faith for the decision.
