    Jack Williams: The Himalayas, cancer and mountain leading in Snowdonia

    Jack Williams: The Himalayas, cancer and mountain leading in Snowdonia

    The Outdoors Fix is a podcast to inspire you to make the outdoors a bigger part of your life. It’s hosted by Liv Bolton.



    My guest in this episode is mountain leader, hiker and trail runner Jack Williams. Jack’s outdoors life has had many different chapters.

    In his twenties, Jack was gripped by pursuing expeditions all around the world, including to the Himalayas and the Sahara Desert. He worked in hospitality and retail in between trips to finance them.

    But a few years ago, he found out he had testicular cancer. Going through that experience led to changes in his relationship with the outdoors and adventure goals.

    He’s now a qualified mountain leader, leading groups and courses in Snowdonia and he’s also focused on family, creating outdoor adventures with his two young sons.

    In the summer, I met up for a beautiful walk with Jack in Llangollen in North Wales, where he now lives. I was keen to hear all about his outdoors story but particularly how getting outside helped him cope with his illness as well as how he’s now shaping an adventurous life for his family in the UK.

    I hope you enjoy this episode of The Outdoors Fix and don’t forget to listen out for Jack’s tips and advice for those interested in becoming a mountain leader or making the outdoors a bigger part of your life!

    Also don’t miss the birdsong at the end of this podcast episode for a short, calming escape from your busy day.

    Elise Downing: Life after running 5,000 miles around the coast of Britain

    Elise Downing: Life after running 5,000 miles around the coast of Britain

    The Outdoors Fix is a podcast to inspire you to make the outdoors a bigger part of your life. It’s hosted by Liv Bolton.



    Elise Downing was in her early twenties and sitting miserably in an office when she decided to do something more than a little out of the norm. She looked at a map of Great Britain and wondered if anyone had ever run around the coast. As you do. A search online suggested not many had. A big running adventure like that would be a good reason to quit her job, she thought.

    Scoot to 2016 and Elise became the first woman and youngest person to run around the coast of Britain. A distance of 5,000 miles (!). She’s now written a book, Coasting, about that epic adventure.

    I met Elise for a walk in Leigh Woods near Bristol on a warm but blustery day in August. I wanted to find out what it really takes to get to the start line of a huge challenge like hers, how her body coped covering up to 40 miles a day, and what life has been like since she stopped running around the coast. Post-adventure life is a part of the story that we don’t often hear about.

    Elise is keen to share the message that anyone can go on a big adventure, you just have to be the one who actually does it.

    I hope you enjoy this episode of The Outdoors Fix and don’t forget to listen out for Elise’s tips and advice for those interested in trail running or making the outdoors a bigger part of your life!

    Also don’t miss the birdsong at the end of this podcast episode for a short, calming escape from your busy day.

    Frankie Butler: From England hockey to outdoor wheelchair adventures

    Frankie Butler: From England hockey to outdoor wheelchair adventures

    The Outdoors Fix is a podcast to inspire you to make the outdoors a bigger part of your life. It’s hosted by Liv Bolton.



    Has the outdoors helped you during a difficult time in your life?

    My guest in this episode is Frankie Butler.

    Frankie used to be an England hockey player, but in 2019 she suffered a devastating injury during a match. It left her unable to walk and needing to use a wheelchair.

    In this episode, Frankie speaks incredibly powerfully about how the outdoors helped her in her darkest times as she came to terms with the changes in her life.

    She’s taken up trail wheeling all over the UK (think trail running but in a wheelchair) and she recently completed a half marathon!

    Frankie’s new mission is to inspire other wheelchair users to get outside and explore nature. She also wants the outdoors community to help make the British countryside more accessible.

    Frankie Butler’s story truly sums up the power of the outdoors - a place that can give hope and joy even amid the most difficult of circumstances.

    I hope you enjoy this episode of The Outdoors Fix and don’t forget to listen out for Frankie’s tips and advice for those interested in trail wheeling, or just how we can bring a bit more nature into our lives!

    Also don’t miss the birdsong at the end of this podcast episode for a short, calming escape from your busy day.

    Lucy is a GP and medical educationalist, fell runner and wild swimmer who lives on Dartmoor.

    Her life is focused on the benefits of nature for mental wellbeing.

    Preet Chandi: The Army Officer on her way to Antarctica

    Preet Chandi: The Army Officer on her way to Antarctica

    What big outdoors adventure would you want to do if you really put your mind to it?

    For my guest Preet Chandi, her dream involves Antarctica.

    Preet is an officer and physiotherapist in the British Army. She’s also a Nordic skier and endurance runner and she is preparing for the biggest trip of her life in November - a solo expedition to the South Pole.

    She’ll be on skis, pulling her kit on a sled for over 6 weeks and travelling 700miles on her own.

    While her training for the Antarctica mission recently has included pulling tyres around London parks, it has also taken her to Norway, Iceland and Greenland.

    But Preet is not a professional adventurer - she had little expedition experience until a couple of years ago and she fits her adventures around her job in the Army.

    She’s determined to inspire people to push their boundaries, particularly women from diverse backgrounds, by showing how the outdoors can help achieve big dreams.

    I hope you enjoy the podcast episode. Listen out for Preet’s outdoors tips and the relaxing minute of sounds from nature at the end of the podcast.

    Jamie Neill: How Scotland's Munros saved me when my badminton career ended

    Jamie Neill: How Scotland's Munros saved me when my badminton career ended

    What do you do when your sporting career, which has been your life since you were nine years old, comes to an end?

    For my guest Jamie Neill, the answer was to put on a pair of hiking boots.

    Jamie was a professional badminton player travelling the world and playing for Scotland in the World Championships. But when his playing career had to stop, he swapped the indoor courts for the outdoors and he hasn’t looked back.

    He’s now summited over 200 Munros, climbing 40 of them in just one week; hiked the West Highland Way and summited the three highest peaks in North Africa. He also joined a walking group which led to him meeting his partner Nikki and starting a family.

    Getting outside has truly helped Jamie’s mental and physical transition from a sport that so dominated his life.

    Jamie and I met 18 months ago on a group walk on Blencathra in the Lake District. He started telling me about his story then, and I’ve wanted to get him on the podcast ever since!

    I hope you enjoy the podcast episode. Listen out for Jamie’s outdoors tips and the relaxing minute of sounds from nature at the end of the podcast.
