Mountain Running Session has morphed into a new slot which we’re sure will be a rising star for years to come! Welcome to the new ‘Endurance Session’ which showcases the best mountain running stories, long-distance solo adventures, multi-sports challenges and simple tales of suffering, hardship and sheer dogged resilience. Our new host is no stranger to this territory; Huw Jack Brassington thrives in this world, having taken on the 'Dragon’s Back', overseas ultra-marathons, numerous triathlons and most recently the legendary 'Paddy Buckley Round’.
We are delighted to announce our super trio of special guests this year:-
Fernanda Maciel, originally from Brazil, now one of the most renowned ultra-marathon athletes in the world today, At 23, she began to participate in international 600km 'non stop' adventure racing. Over the years, she progressed in each facet of adventure racing (kayak, MTB, trail running), multi-sports (snowboarding, MTB, downhill, speed, trail running), triathlon and marathons over mountains to become a great endurance athlete. Today, Fernanda's achievements include being the first woman to run the Camino de Santiago Compostela (860km in 10 days) and was second on the Ultra Trail Mount Fuji (169km).
