Love the outdoors? There’s still time to book your ticket for November’s Kendal Mountain Festival.

When: November 16 – 19 2017

What: Where do I start? There’s literally loads going on. Including (and this is just the tip of the iceberg):

Inspiring talks
Get inspired by a long list of specialist speakers. From adventurer, Jenny Tough, who will be talking about her inspiring solo travel (biking, hiking, running, sailing, trekking, kayaking, skiing and surfing her way across six continents), to snowboarding Olympic medallist, Jenny Jones, and marathon open water swimmer, Beth French, the festival has a vast schedule of inspiring talks. There’s too many to list here, but expect specialist speakers covering Climb, Bike, Snowsports, Endurance Sports, Underground (Cave), Adventure & Exploration and Outdoor Swimming. Oh, and don’t miss out on hearing from Mark Beaumont, fresh from completing his epic world record cycle around the world.
