Anna McNuff

Co-founder

I’m an endurance athlete, adventurer and mischief maker. I get my kicks from exploring the world through long human powered journeys. I’m on a mission to find the limit of my own potential, and I love helping others unlock theirs too.

Emma Frampton

Co-founder

I’m a community builder and communicator, that loves nothing more than helping people connect with each other, themselves and with nature. And I value the personal growth that comes with pushing my boundaries through outdoor adventures.

Nadia Weigh

Community Leader

I’m at my happiest when I’m outdoors – whether it be walking, camping, kayaking or swimming. I also love to travel and I’m lucky that my work takes me to unusual and exciting places, primarily in Africa. I also run our AQ monthly adventure book club!

Kate Garner

Community Leader

I enjoy walking, running, biking, swimming & SUP-ing from my front door. I like to escape to the mountains for multi-day walks & wild camping, but I’ve learnt to love staying local this year & have had some great south Shropshire microadventures.

If it’s hilly, muddy and I have my map and compass and a rucksack full of kit…then I’m happy. Fellrunning, mountain biking, bike packing and wild camping. Still so many more adventures to be had!

Gemma Johnstone

I’m a bit of an outdoors dabbler with a mild obsession for cyclo-cross racing! I ride various bikes, kayak, walk, bike pack/tour, open water swim (warm!) and plan to bivvy/wild camp. I’ll have a go at most things if I think they look fun!

Mirka Duxberry

I’ve never considered myself to be an adventurer until now. I suppose an adventure means different things to different people. For me, exploring the Shropshire Hills, learning about fell running, SUP, wild swimming & testing myself physically & mentally is a great start.
