It's the new year, and you've undoubtedly stacked up a list of must-do adventures for 2017. To get the most out of those adventures, set yourself up properly with specific training - whether it be an ultramarathon, a ski trip or a climbing mission on your radar.
In Ushuaia, at the southern most tip of South America, Lucy Barnard will take the most gargantuan step of her lifetime, the first step in her journey to walk across the length of the earth. Over three years, she plans to cover 30,000 kilometers, reaching the northern most point of North America in Barrow, Alaska. Impressed by the magnitude of this endeavour, The North Face and AG Outdoor are proud to award Lucy with The North Face Adventure Grant for 2017.
From December 2016 to March 2017, Andrew Lock and Neil Ward will conduct The Great Traverse, a world first 1600 kilometre winter traverse of Alaska’s Brooks Range.
