Today’s guest is nothing short of a world record-breaker!!!
Just last month she claimed the title of most marathons run in consecutive days by a woman, and she did it Down Under, clocking up 6,330 kilometres over 150 days, spanning from Cape York to Melbourne.
Other than the admiration of an entire nation, our next guest walked away from the 22-week race with $131,000 raised for the conservation organisation, Wilderness Society, whose vision is to transform Australia into a society that protects, respects and connects with the natural world.
She’s a wilderness warrior, marathon runner and global sports sensation, give it up for Erchana Murray-Bartlett.
