We are so excited to have Tanya Bottomely visit us at Further Faster for a live event in-store! 
Tanya shares her exciting first attempt to traverse the South Island from coast to coast following the circle of latitude 45° south of the Earth's equator. From the rugged, untouched west to the penguin colonies of the east and everything in between. This is one Woman's extraordinary journey of over 500km.

Covering over 300km on foot, 270km by bike and 22km by kayak, the journey took 26 days, starting from the rugged, untouched west coast of New Zealand's South Island and finishing on the sandy beaches of the east coast.

Sounds epic! Tanya is an advocate for women's empowerment, showing women everywhere that there is a space where fear and success can co-exist and that extraordinary strength can come from choosing audacity over timidity.


It will be a night you won't forget and will leave you wanting to get outside more and more yourself.
