Description

Awesome Challenges: Overcoming Adversity

An evening designed by runners for runners. Informative talks, useful hints and tips on how to improve.

Tom Stayt: Tom will speak about how running for him has changed over time and has become increasingly important in supporting his mental health. Due to some personal issues Tom recognised he needed to make some changes and joining a running club and having a routine has helped to maintian those changes. Tom is also a Mental Health first aider at work so is keen to support those who need it and share his story.

Robin Mark-Schols: will be telling his story from brain tumour to recovery to GB masters with a little about the Hilly Helmet Run. Robin has created a hobby and a new lifestyle and set and achieved goals that would never have been possible without the single minded determination he gained from his illness, culminating in a world masters run for team GB and the creation of a unique running event to help back a charity that helps people going through what he has experienced.

Dan Summers: more details to follow

Thane Hall: Thane will be sharing his experience of completing the Spine race, an epic 268 mile race tracing the backbone of Britain. A winter, non-stop, gruelling event that requires mental strength as well as physical ability. Thane will be telling his story of completing this race and other events that inspire his podcast Runners on Trail.

Brendan Rendall: Last Summer Brendan ran across Africa 4000km. He only started running at the age of 27 after a bet that he couldn't run a half marathon. After 10yrs of drinking, drugs and unhealthy living Brendan has found that running has given him the focus he needed. Brendan has completed 27 marathons and many endurance challenges over the last few years raising £90,000 for African charities. His next big challenge is planned for 2021 where he will run the length of Africa.
