Audrey in her own words..

"In November 2013, I made a bit of running history when I became the first Scot (and second British woman) to complete my Antarctic Odyssey — the Antarctic Ice Marathon and Antarctic 100km double — in the space of three days, and this is one of my greatest achievement.

Crossing that 100k finish line marked both the end of a journey and the beginning of a new one...

It’s was pretty cold on the night and it was raining all night long.  I didn’t want to get out of bed, but I needed to pee! I put my poncho on and headed out. It was 7 am by this point so it was time to get everything packed up. I managed to pack everything up while still in the tent dry. The tent is totally soaked, not much I can do about it! A quick 10 min walk down the gravel path and I was at the...

🥾 Final day of walking in the Overland Track! I had a leisurely morning, chatting to the hikers who were going to be getting the ferry service. 🚤 I popped down to the Jetty and to be honest is it a pretty awesome way to finish the journey. The view of the lake from the jetty was really spectacular and well worth walking out to. It only took a few mins. I had a 17k walk and head of me around...

💗This has to be one of the most beautiful sections on the Overland walk - every view was magnificent, there was so much to see, and the scenery seemed to be changing all the time. The walk was a lot easier today, very flat, not much elevation gain or loss, the path was pretty dry as well.  The route runs parallel to the Narcissus River for most of the day, but a lot of the times you can’t really see...

⛺️ I took my time this morning, it also takes a little longer getting the tent packed up. I was pleased I’d decided to sleep in my tent the cabin would have been a little too claustrophobic!!  After crossing over a small bridge it was a really pleasant walk to Du Cane Hut (2.9km from Kia Ora Hut) which is an old cabin in the most beautiful clearing!

April 7, 2020

Such a stunning walk today, beauty in every view.  ⏰ I left around 10 am and arrived at the cabin at 3pm ish    The cabin is quite small and a little bit claustrophobic- it’s one large room for eating and sleeping there are two large bunk beds, which can sleep quite a few people. I needed some space tonight and it seemed a shame to have carried a tent all this way and not get to use it!
