Jenny Tough

Jenny Tough is a writer and adventurer, and an enthusiast for all things endurance challenges, particularly in the mountains. Whether it be a race or a solo adventure, her desire to push her limits has led her to numerous corners of the world. She is currently working on a global challenge to run, solo and unsupported, across a mountain range on every continent (5/6 complete). She’s also competed in long-distance bikepacking races, including becoming the first woman to finish both the inaugural Silk Road Mountain Race and Atlas Mountain Race – considered two of the toughest off-road bike races.

Outside of her personal pursuits, she is on a mission to get more people outside and challenging their own comfort zones, particularly women and girls, which she has championed by launching a book called Tough Women: Adventure Stories.
