In 2016 Jenny Tough ran 900km (solo and self-supported) across Kyrgyzstan from Karakol to Osh via the Tien Shan mountains. Since quitting his life as a couch potato in 2005 Dave Cornthwaite got busy, so far completing eleven non-motorised journeys each over 1000 miles, including skateboarding across Australia, paddleboarding the Mississippi and swimming the Lower Missouri.
As well as hearing from Jenny and Dave, we’ll also be showing a selection of the best adventure films from around the world: be amazed by watching Johanna, the Finnish freediver who dives under the ice, and Tom Seipp, the fearless young cyclist with an incredible enthusiasm for long journeys on his bike, plus more of our favourite films from Kendal Mountain Festival 2016!
