Women In Adventure Evening

Ellis Brigham Mountain Sports
10-12 Southampton Street
Join Love Her Wild and Ellis Brigham for an evening celebrating women in adventure. Hear the exciting stories of 3 modern day female adventurers who will be reliving their journeys. As well as providing inspiration, they will be talking honestly and offering advice on key issues that might be holding you back from doing your own adventures.
Is it safe being a female alone?
Although never 'down' with exercise, Laura threw herself head first into a huge 1,249 mile running adventure. In 2016, she successfully ran from Rome to London, solo. Laura will be discussing the practicalities of completing a journey like this as a solo female. Was it really safe?
Where to start with training and equipment?
From a young age, Amy had a dream to visit the north pole, which she made a reality when she signed up to the North Pole marathon. That's not the only unusual marathon she has completed as earlier this year she also finished the London marathon on crutches, following an injury. Amy will be sharing her advice on training and the process of choosing gear.
How do you plan a big adventure?
After 18 months and 20,000km, Claire arrived in Japan after cycling all the way from London. Along the way she passed through 24 countries. How do you go about planning such a long-term adventure? Claire will be sharing her top tips.
Each talk will conclude with a short Q&A so come ready with your questions!
The evening will be hosted by Love Her Wild founder and full time adventure blogger, Bex Band. There will be some time at the end to network, speak with the adventurers directly and maybe even find a teammate for your newly inspired adventure!
Tickets are very limited so please book early to avoid disappointment.
