A Christmas Run For Nepal featuring Lizzy Hawker

Event news: Like the Wind presents ‘A Christmas Run For Nepal featuring Lizzy Hawker’ in collaboration with Advent Running

Like the Wind have teamed up with Lizzy and Advent Running to host A Christmas Run For Nepal. If you would like to meet and run with the international ultrarunner while doing good, they’ve got a great opportunity for you to do so on Tuesday 22 December.

The evening will be filled with a social run, talk and Q&A with Lizzy followed by a raffle where you can win some exciting running prizes.

Lizzy lives for part of the year in Kathmandu and has seen the devastating effects of the recent earthquake there first hand. 100% of the benefit for this event will go to a Nepal charity that Lizzy has chosen because they are directly helping people rebuild their lives by distributing solar lights in the Manaslu region.

Places are limited so if you would like to meet Lizzy on Tuesday 22 December, make sure you get your ticket now!

Lizzy Hawker

Over the years, Lizzy has found the courage to challenge herself in many ways and has held the world record for 24 hours on road as well as being the 100 km World Champion in 2006. She is a 5 time winner of The North Face Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc and in 2013 set a new world record running from Everest Base Camp to Kathmandu. This resulted in Lizzy being named the National Geographic Adventurer of the Year in 2013.

Lizzy says: "For me, the most important thing is to run simply for the love of it, with heart and soul as well as head and legs. And then to follow the path that opens up."


Like the Wind Magazine 

'It's Why we run, not How to run'. Since February 2014, Like the Wind Magazine have published hundreds of photo essays and inspiring running stories, all beautifully illustrated. As well as having Lizzy Hawker talk about life, running and how the two meet, they will also have a few boxes of the latest edition of Like the Wind magazine – Issue #7 – recently released and available to purchase, as well as Like the Wind raffle prizes.
