Victoria is an outdoor enthusiast based in Kendal on the edge of the Lake District. She spends the majority of her free time outside doing something active; fell running, ski touring, open water swimming, bike packing, trad climbing.

Her passion for adventure has grown from her desire to push herself to reach new limits. In 2022, she was half of female team that won the Original Mountain Marathon (OMM) elite class. A female team hadn’t finished the elite course since 2016.

Her hunt for the next big challenge has led her to target the Dragon’s Back Race 2023 (380km distance, 17,400m elevation) for # Team Montane. Bring it on!

“The Montane trailblazer waist pack is my trusty fell racing companion. Even when it’s packed full of all the essential race kit (food being most important!), it remains lightweight so I can achieve the pace I want out on the fells. Overall, Montane’s functional, lightweight kit allows me to focus on pushing my body as hard as possible! !”- Victoria
