Kendal Mountain Festival - UK Tour 2020

Fire up your imagination! Watch an incredible collection of short adventure films on the big screen, stories of human endurance and breathtaking environments.

Plus hear from the amazing Anna McNuff, joining the festival on stage. Anna is an endurance athlete, adventurer and mischief maker. She recently completed an incredible adventure running the distance of 100 marathons through Britain completely barefoot!

Named by The Guardian as one of the top female adventurers of our time, Anna has a capacity for feats of exceptional endurance, most of them solo, having previously run self-supported along New Zealand’s 3000km Te Araroa Trail.

Festival Director Steve Scott will present the evening and there’ll be prizes from the tour sponsors.

WHY? 'Awesome Saturday night out @kendalmountainfestival. Watched the most awe-inspiring, jaw-droppingly beautiful line up of short films and listened to the legend @annamcnuff talk about her South American travel tales. Always honest, inspiring, crazy and funny' @sweatybettyruns | Kingston, March 2019
