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 2018, Jenny attempted to summit Mount Denali in Alaska.
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 formed a vital part of the training programme for her solo Antarctica expedition in November 2018.
Located just 390 miles from the Arctic Circle, Jenny and the team did not reach the summit of Mt. Denali but the expedition was invaluable in helping Jenny develop her cold weather skills, providing the opportunity to experience further snow and ice climbing, self-rescue crevasse techniques, glacier travel and winter camping. Jenny ascended via the West Buttress route and would like to return one day to reach the summit!
Announcement and application details coming early 2019!
In August 2019, 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.
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 2019 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.
