Who’s There & When

Saturday’s Inspiration Stage line-up kicks-off with ‘the world’s greatest living explorer’, Sir Ranulph Fiennes – a pioneer of record-breaking exploration with an unparalleled story to tell, including being the first to reach both Poles, the first to cross the Antarctic and Arctic Ocean, and the first to circumnavigate the world along its polar axis.

The inspirational content continuous throughout the day, with one of the world’s best in cross country mountain biking, two-time Olympian Lea Davison, record-breaking ocean rower and kayaker, Cyril Derreumaux. Cross-country coach, ultramarathoner, cyclist and skier, Mirna Valerio (AKA the Mirnavator) will close the day with her message of inclusivity.

On the Sunday, ex Special Forces operator and star of many survival shows, Rudy Reyes, will bring his passion and energy for the outdoors to the Inspiration Stage, followed by adaptive ice climber Kimber Cross, who will be using her story of resilience and inclusion to teach others about the outdoors. For those seeking inspiration about hiking or running the US trails, the Sunday afternoon will see Mikah Meyer take to the stage to pass on his experience of visiting all 419 US National Parks in a single journey, and then 7-times Western States 100 winner, Scott Jurek – a true ultra running legend.
