Volcano Tobogganing / Outdoor Fitness

I headed out into the Pacific Ocean to Chile’s remote territory of Easter Island for the February Tapati festival.

On the summit of a 45 degree volcano, the islanders hold their annual Haka Pei ceremony. Mounting a whittled banana-trunk-rocket, and dressed in nothing but loincloths for protection, competitors are pushed over the edge to attempt to ride the furthest down the lower slopes. Feature story and photos below from the recent issue of Outdoor Fitness magazine.

Running with the Pack / Men’s Running

In late August 2017, I travelled to Västmanland Sweden for the BBC and spent five days researching the behaviour of wolves with the help of local scientists and wildlife experts. 

I also managed to squeeze in five great runs through the wolves’ forest territory. A whole load of exercise, beautiful scenery and just a sniff of danger also proved to be the right kind of angle for Men’s Running magazine.

Here is the feature story and photos from running with the pack.

You can read it below.
