Kendal Mountain Tour
Unleash your wild side…
Join us for an evening celebrating adventure from some of the most spectacular places on earth, brought to you by the world's biggest mountain Festival - Kendal Mountain Festival.
A chance to watch a selection of award-winning films from long-distance endurance events to cinematically beautiful tales showcasing adventure from across the globe. Each film will be introduced by the Kendal Mountain Festival team.
Alongside a screening of his film, Will Renwick is sharing his incredible personal story on stage - his challenge to be the first person to run all 189 of Wales’ mountains in one trip.
Will achieved this incredible feat of endurance in a record-breaking time of just 23 days and raised an incredible £12,500 for Mind Over Mountains, a charity which works to restore mental health through nature.
Expect exhilarating and moving tales from those creating waves in the worlds of running, skiing, mountain biking and regenerative farming. These are this year's Tour films…
