EVENT: Barkley Marathon, training and beyond.

Katie Wright Starting Barkley Marathons

We are super pumped to have Ultra Endurance athlete and Barkley Marathons competitor Katie Wright in-store talking all things Barkley! 


Katie is a La Sportiva ultra-endurance athlete who started running ultras by doing a lap of Wales in 2017. Shortly after finishing her 1000-mile run around Wales, she watched the Barkley marathons documentary and decided it was the next big goal.

Ever since, she has been exploring mountains, learning what 'Vert' is and trying to find her way around a compass. Not to mention trying to figure out the puzzle of how to actually get a spot to run the Barkley.

After five years of training, she got the chance to give it a go! 

She'll chat about her training, kit and the event itself. So come prepped with all your Barkley and running-related questions - there will be time for plenty of Q&A!


We can't wait to see you there!
