A Night with Rosie Swale Pope

The Old Laundry Theatre, Bowness-on-Windermere

6 Mar 19 - 6 Mar 19

Join us at the fantastic Old Laundry Theatre in Windermere, Cumbria for an evening of thrilling entertainment. Rosie Swale Pope, a long-standing patron of PHASE will be on stage telling stories of her magnificent global adventures. Rosie is an author, adventurer and marathon runner, who successfully completed the longest unsupported run in world history – over 20,000 miles in 1789 days (5 years). Rosie has faced wolves, extreme cold and loneliness. Constantly saying, “I can!”, Rosie embodies the core values and ethos of PHASE Worldwide.

In the 1970s, Rosie sailed to Australia and back with her husband and young daughter, giving birth to her son on board. Rosie took up marathon running when she was 48 and a few of her other achievements include sailing single-handed across the Atlantic in a small boat, trekking 3,000 miles alone through Chile on horseback. running across Cuba and Romania, and completing the gruelling Marathon Des Sables in the Sahara – twice! In 2003 Rosie ran across Nepal to raise funds for a PHASE health post in the remote village of Humla. The journey was 1060 miles and established a new world-record, just 68 days.

Proceeds from the evening will go towards PHASE projects in isolated areas of Nepal.
