Event Details

Book your place and join us for a one-of-a-kind evening celebrating exploration of some of the wildest places on earth. For our Edinburgh tour date we have two incredible speakers lined up, Jenny Tough and Greg Boswell:

Jenny Tough is currently aiming to run (solo and unsupported) across a mountain range on every continent. In 2016 she ran 900km across Kyrgyzstan from Karakol to Osh via the Tien Shan mountains. Last October she ran 860km across the Atlas Mountains, a wild experience of hostile landscapes, desert heat, Berber hospitality, and overwhelming police encounters…

Greg Boswell is one of Scotland’s most experienced young climbers. Having started climbing in 2004 at the age of 13 he has since then tried to excel in most aspects of the sport. Greg is now infamous for fighting off a grizzly bear whilst climbing in the Canadian Rockies with Nick Bullock.

As well as hearing from Jenny and Greg, we'll also be showing a selection of our favourite films from Kendal Mountain Festival 2017 – from flying above the Azores to freediving with Orcas, from skateboarding across Colorado to swimming in the wild ocean – you'll be taken on a journey you'll never forget!
