The literal ups and downs of walking from Land’s End to John o’ Groats solo were the focus of a talk from inspirational coach Jen Le Marinel.

Jen, based in Cheltenham, took three-and-a-half months to complete her epic journey and shared her highs and lows of the trip; from peace, quiet and breath-taking scenery to a bout of food poisoning after a late night curry.

She talked about what she learned about herself along the way and how it helped shape her business, WildFire Walks. She has also written a blog about her adventure.

Jen says: “While walking solo from Land’s End to John o’ Groats was never going to be easy, the lessons were life changing and far more relevant to life back in the real world than you might imagine.”

Jen is the founder of WildFire Walks, a business born out of a passion for helping others and a belief in the power of nature to heal and inspire. Jen combines a transformational coaching approach with elements of the outdoors to help tired, stressed professionals reclaim their happiness.
