Jenny will take on some of the world’s toughest races in 2017 as she prepares to run solo to the South Pole in 2017. Read on to find out more about some of her forthcoming expeditions.
In June 2017, Jenny will summit Denali in Alaska as part of a gruelling 20-22 day solo expedition.
As the highest mountain in North America, Denali boasts a summit elevation of 20,310 feet (6,190 m) above sea level and is classed as one of the much sought after “Seven Summits” - the highest mountains on the seven continents. The challenge forms a vital part of the training programme for her Antarctica attempt in November.
Located just 390 miles from the Arctic Circle, Denali will help Jenny to develop her Arctic adventure skills, providing the opportunity to experience snow and ice climbing, self-rescue crevasse techniques, glacier travel and winter camping. Jenny will be ascending via the West Buttress route, carrying all the food and equipment she needs to complete the expedition.
At the end of August 2017, Jenny will take on the Fire and Ice Ultra 250km in Iceland. Described as Iceland’s toughest foot race, Jenny will complete the self-sufficient running race in just six days.
Covering a range of terrains including sand dunes, lava fields, volcanic landscape and glacial river crossings, Jenny is looking forward to a race that is exciting and unpredictable as well as extreme in nature.
There is no blueprint for the route, with previous competitors covering land that no one has previously set foot on. Jenny is honoured to be taking part in such a unique event and is fortunate to have so many friends join her at this event.

In August 2017, Jenny will join a team of 8 women racing against the clock to beat the current overall record of cycling across Europe.
Full details will follow shortly!
In August 2017, Jenny will head to Norway to take on the Isklar Norseman Xtreme Triathlon.
Described as “simply the ultimate triathlon on planet earth” the event includes a 3800m swim, 180km of cycling and a 42km run. When athletes cross the finish line, they have climbed a total 5000m of altitude.
Jenny will endure hazardous weather conditions which could range from a warm sunny day to an all out blizzard in the mountains. She’ll also jump off the back of a ferry into freezing water to start the gruelling swim section of the race.
Jenny feels honoured to have been invited to compete in this truly unique event. As ever she has a goal to provide motivation - she is determined to beat the time achieved by her partner when he competed in the event a few years ago.

In 2018 Jenny will complete an epic non-stop cycle event from Canada to Cuba in a team of four with two good friends and her partner Matt.
Support vehicles will track the team throughout the expedition, carrying kayaks so they can make the necessary water crossings along the gruelling route. To complete the adventure the team will take on a 48 hour kayak trip from the tip of Florida to Cuba.
Further announcements coming soon.
