Laura is a British endurance athlete, adventurer and motivational speaker
Laura Kennington speaks on the following topics:
Laura is a British endurance athlete, adventurer and motivational speaker with a passion for the capability of the human body. Previous adventures include solo kayaking a section of the Volga River in Russia, solo cycling the world’s longest coastal route across Ireland, solo cycling Scotland’s North Coast 500 route, running the length of Fuerteventura (100 miles!) in 4 days and circumnavigating three of the Channel Islands using three different sporting disciplines as part of a rather extreme and one of a kind triathlon!
She has most recently returned from solo cycling 3700 miles along the North Sea-facing coasts of 8 countries, from Scotland to Norway.
If there’s one thing that Laura is certain of, it’s that we are all capable of much more than we realise – all it takes is a little self-belief and a hearty pinch of perseverance. Laura is a keen advocate of aiming high and following your inner spark. Having quite literally leapt out of her comfort zone a few years ago whilst cliff-diving in America, she now enthusiastically encourages others, through her public talks, to think big, be brave and to start now.
A strong believer in the positive impact that adventure and sport can have on children and adults alike, Laura uses her human powered journeys as a platform to inspire and encourage others to develop their own confidence and explore their own boundaries. Laura’s talks are about the importance of mindset when it comes to challenges of any kind. From the planning and logistics that go on behind the scenes, to the endurance capability of the human body and how to deal with the unexpected!
