Ultra achievement

Ultra achievement

Many congratulations to our Operations Manager, Liz Noakes (pictured, right), who successfully completed the very challenging ‘100 Mile Run’ this week - a multi day ultra marathon event along the Cotswold Way. Over the course of four days Liz covered the entire Cotswold Way from Chipping Camden to Bath, running from 16 to 33 miles each day.

Along with a friend, and around 200 other runners, Liz spent up to 7 hours a day on the trail stopping at designated campsites in the evenings where tents, meals and reviving ice baths were provided. Luggage was transferred by the organisers so the runners only had to carry a small back pack with a few essential snacks and kit. Flapjacks, nuts, fruit and muffins helped keep her going as well as the occasional stop for a caffeine top-up.

Liz really enjoyed running the undulating, wooded trails and seeing the superb views from the Cotswold escarpment. Although, not surprisingly, it was the sense of achievement that came with crossing the finishing line in Bath, that was her favourite moment.

But she isn’t resting on her laurels. Liz's next big challenge is the Lakeland Trails Ultra in July – a 110km race in 24 hours around the Lake District. Just the thought of it leaves the rest of us feeling exhausted. We wish her the very best of luck.

Wilderness Lecture with Helen Sharman

The Wilderness Lectures are a much-loved Bristol tradition spanning some 34 years. After a year out in 2020 they made a welcome return this month with one of the best lectures ever delivered by Helen Sharman, Britain's first astronaut. Helen enthralled a sell-out audience with stories, anecdotes and fascinating details of the time she spent training and aboard the Russian space station back in 1991. Helen is pictured here with our MD, Steve Berry, one of the three founders of Wilderness Lectures.

The next lecture takes place on December 9th and will be given by world famous climber, Peter Habeler. Some tickets should be available on the door. For further information visit Wilderness Lectures
