The second adidas Endurance session at KMF sees us based at the new KMF Adventure Sports Village at the Dojo.
Headlining the event will be the 'Famous Brownlee Brothers' - fresh from their success at London 2012. Alistair and Jonathan Brownlee will give us insights and stories from that famous day in London and what makes them the dominant force in world traithlon. The Dojo will be buzzing!
Hosted by James Thurlow of Open Adventure we venture once again into the world of adventure racing, ultra distance events and endurance athletes admired the world over. We will have the top two British Adventure Racing teams recently returned from an arduous World Championships in France. They have images, film clips and stories to tell from this epic event.
We also feature a presentation by Ultra-marathon expert Andy Mouncey who will present his lecture 'It's Not About The Distance". In this powerful and inspirational presentation Andy uses his experience as an athlete and a coach to make ultra running appear ultra simple. Doing the training gets you to the start line. Andy will lift the lid on the three things that make the difference between a DNF and finishing with pride.
Nick Gracie and Tom Gibbs of 'Team adidas Terrex' will give us a unique insight form the exciting world of adventure racing at the highest level.
