My Ultra Story
January 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm GMT
What is a purple event?
During lockdown Adventure Geek launched a series of interesting talks every Wednesday night at 7pm (known as “purple events”). We have listened to talks about all sorts of adventures such as the Great Wall of China and Antarctica, to more serious topics such as mental health and the benefits of meditation.
This week's speaker
This week we have Emily Wright who is an ultra hiker. Ultra hikers walk huge distances over a set time period to push limits and test what is possible for the body and the mind. Ultra hiking is much more of a mental challenge and you will find out why during this inspirational talk of pure grit and determination from Emily.
Emily says “In this talk I will tell you about the ups and downs of my experience as an ultra hiker, how I balance training and my family life and how I can't ever see a year I don't complete at least one ultra challenge”
