FuerteventuRun

Ironically, Laura Kennington used to detest running.  With the help of the Running School in London, she finally cracked it and was able to run further and explore more places.

Loving endurance sports and wanting to put her new running skills into practice, Laura wanted a challenge that she could squeeze into a week, preferably on an Island somewhere.  She did some research and discovered that Fuerteventura translates (according to Wikipedia!) to "great adventure" - perfect!

Laura was joined by her good friend Tessa on the expedition and following the long distance walking trail the GR131, the pair ran the length of Fuerteventura - 100 miles in just 4 consecutive days.
