Legendary explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes will be hosting an evening on expedition-length multi-sport racing at the Royal Geographic society building on June 21st.
Speakers will include Dr Mike Stroud – trans antartic and eco challenge veteran who will “look in detail at the training, nutritional and medical issues involved in adventure racing and whether or not there is a ‘type of person’ who is likely to excel naturally at this sport.
Steve Seaton – Editor of Runners world, and endurance race addict – will be talking “about teamwork – everything from bringing together a team, to how to help them to work together both before and during the race. He will also touch on the red-hot issue of finding sponsorship and working well with that sponsor once they are on board.” Last but not least Sarah Odell, a professional adventure racer and model, who’ll be talking about her eco challenge experience and her win in the year 2000 Raid Gauloises and what people can learn from her experiences.
