Its getting closer to the big day, our first winter vegan festival is just around the corner (19th November 10:30am) to be precise. As with all our festivals we have a great line up of speakers and workshops for you guys to enjoy.
Fiona Oakes – Nominated as one of the inspirational women in the UK by the Daily Mail, Fiona is without doubt the most impressive, inspirational and selfless people I have ever met, and I would encourage anyone regardless if they are vegan, non-vegans, runners or non runners to take time to listen to Fiona’s talk.
The below extract was taken from the about page of The Fiona Oakes Foundation website (http://fionaoakesfoundation.co.uk/about/)
Fiona holds five marathon course records – The North Pole Marathon, The Antarctic Ice Marathon, the Ruska Marathon, The Dartmoor Vale Marathon and the Essex Championship Marathon at Halstead. She has completed over 50 marathons and a personal best of 2 hours 38 minutes. In 2013 she became the fastest women in the history of the World to run a marathon on all 7 continents in terms of the total number of hours taken. She is also the fastest woman to run a marathon on all 7 Continents Plus the North Pole – both in terms of the aggregate time and the elapsed days – an incredible achievement but made quite extraordinary given her disability.
