In this episode we talk to the winner of the Ice Ultra, Beyond the Ultimate’s 5-day multistage race across Arctic Sweden, a runner who faced down 5 days of running in temperatures as low as -35c with a grin on his face.
A runner who not long ago decided to take a leap of faith and work towards making a career out of the thing he loves most.
When Dicksy took on the Jungle Ultra (the same format but much hotter, much wetter, and with infinitely more mosquitos) there was a lightbulb moment somewhere out among the trees where he decided to build his livelihood around running.
If you’re planning a cold race or adventure, we have some tips for you. If you’re looking for inspiration to take your own passion and make it a living then Simon’s story and his massive enthusiasm is just what you need.
