We met through our mutual love of the great outdoors and have since been on many adventures together, from completing the Devon Coast to Coast Extreme adventure race (140 miles by bike, foot and kayak in 21 hours) to becoming parents to two free-range children. We’re both experienced athletes and always up for a challenge; in 2015 we spent a year living wild under canvas in Britain.
