This week we get to share the top five moments when serial adventurer, traveler, endurance challenger and Montane athlete Jenny Tough has felt most alive on her adventures.
We had such a great conversation with Jenny, talking about some of her favourite moments when she felt most alive on her adventures.
Jenny Tough (her real name!) is an adventure traveler and endurance challenger. She specialises in fast and light expeditions and has vast experiences on all continents in running, trekking, cycling, skiing, paddling, and sailing.
Currently living in Edinburgh she can be mostly found bikepacking around Scotland and abroad, or fastpacking (running very long distances with a heavy backpack) across mountains. She was the first person to run solo and unsupported across The Tien Shan mountains in Kyrgyzstan, and the Atlas Mountains in northern Africa, on her ‘Run the world mountains’ mission to run across a mountain range on every continent.
If you want to find out more about Jenny and what she’s up to, you can have a look at her website jennytough.com Or if you want to find out more of what’s keeping her warm, dry and mobile on her adventures head over to montane.com
We’ve also got the book that Jenny helped to curate called Tough Women Adventure Stories available on our shop, available here. It really is an awesome book, celebrating women in adventure!
Until next time, enjoy the outside.
We also have a free ticket code for the National Running Show which is live on 22-23 January at the NEC in Birmingham. Use the code OUTSIDE when selecting your tickets for the event here.
