Powering the Adventure Revolution

SOCIALS

As part of our commitment to the #AdventureRevolution, we host regular social events where a speaker from the EC community shares their latest adventure with us. Come along to meet like-minded people and get inspired! Currently in London and Bristol, we hope to be able to spread to more cities in the future. Everyone is welcome but tickets must be bought in advance.

Rupert Kirkwood has clocked up nearly 20,000 paddling miles over the last 15 years and claims to be the only person to have kayaked every inch of the coast of SW England from Poole to Minehead (all 1156 miles of it). He frequently ventures a dozen miles offshore and has encountered whales, dolphins, porpoises, peregrines, puffins, seals, sunfish, sharks, otters, giant tuna and a swimming badger.

Rupert is passionate about British wildlife and loves the simplicity and silence of kayaking in the wilderness of the open sea and his talk truly entertains with humorous anecdotes and astounding images of coastline and many remarkable marine creatures.

With no experience at all, schoolteacher Brendan Rendall took up running after a bet, training in the dark so no-one could see him. Ten years later in 2016, Brendan became the first person to run the full length of Malawi, raising over £35,000 for the ‘Friends of Mulanje Orphans’ (FOMO) charity.

This summer he embarked on another adventure in aid of FOMO - on the 8th of September Brendan finally reached the Indian Ocean after spending three months running coast to coast across Africa, from Namibia to Mozambique. He covered an epic 4,000km with a small self-supported team, camping along the way. Come along to hear Brendan’s hilarious tales of trials, tribulations and trainers…
