Lizzy is Spot on

Posted in Dishing the Dirt by Matt Ward on Wed 19 Oct '11


If you are following Lizzy Hawker’s Sky Dance across the Himalayas via her updates on Twitter, then you’ll know that the British ultra runner is progressing well in her 1000 mile trek


Another great, and more tangible, way of following her is via her Find Me Spot locator profile, via her Spot Satellite GPS Messenger. The product is really cool and for about £150 could be a lifesaver:

The SPOT Satellite GPS Messenger provides a vital line of communication with friends and family when you want it, and emergency assistance when you need it. Using 100% satellite technology, SPOT works virtually anywhere in the world, even where cell phones don’t – all with the push of a button.

    Lizzy has been out of contact for quite some days because she lost all her communications equipment. We are very relieved to be able to report that she has managed to contact us this morning (Nepali time) and reports that all is OK. However, she also told us that she is breaking off her GHT attempt and is returning to Kathmandu.That is going to take another 3-4 if not more days. Only then will we all know the full story.

    Thanks Roger. Good news that Lizzy is well! Will be very interesting to hear what has happened…

Mud, Sweat and Tears was dreamt up some time ago. I had returned to the sport of running (competitively) after around a 15 year layoff due to injury.
