On the subject of running, Nikki Love will be running across Australia this August! https://nikkilove.co.uk/
The Great Outdoors Challenge is a self supported backpacking challenge, coast to coast across Scotland. It takes place every year and there are some great blogs/reflections from this year's event: https://www.tgochallenge.co.uk/
Here's a blog post we liked about starting backpacking - Day 1 of the West Highland Way
Mel Nicholls is setting off to handcycle LEJOG on 13th June. You can read more about the challenge and follow her progress here.
Also, there's been a big stir in the wild camping community after a business tried to set up something called "UK wild camp" that was basically just paying to camp in a field. That's all over now.
