Kendal Mountain Festival returns this weekend in the biggest UK gathering of outdoor enthusiasts. Their Festival theme this year is ‘Joy’ – to help bring balance, peace and clarity to our lives despite ever-pressing world events.
The four days of the Festival are a brilliant mix of both ticketed and free events, meaning anyone on any budget can come and enjoy the Festival and have a great time.
For ultra running enthusiasts there are specific events to go and watch. Including talks from nutritionalist Renee Mcgregor, explorer Levinson Wood, guided trail runs with Adidas Terrex, plus an Inov-8 Endurance Session with ultra runners James Gibson, Jamie Aarons and Nina Kuypers. You can even join a trail running session with ultra runner Nicky Spinks.
I am incredibly excited (and honoured) to be leading the ‘Inov-8 Endurance Session’ at @kendalmountainfestival this year, alongside @andy__berry. We’ll be joined by some incredible guests including James Gibson, Sean Conway, Jamie Aarons, Nina Kuypers and Haroon Mota.
