For the Love of Mary

Try telling 97-year-old George Etzweiler you're too old for running! He started competing in the annual 7.6 mile race up Mount Washington aged 69... and still takes part nearly 30 years later. And more important than his lucky green running shorts, George carries something special in every step: the memory of his late wife of 68 years, Mary.

Reel Rock - Break on Through

The grade 5.15 in climbing is described as a number representing the unattainable, a ‘magical barrier’ similar to breaking the four-minute mile. At the start of 2017, only a few male climbers had achieved the grade and no women. Enter an exceptionally driven 19-year-old, Margo Hayes. “When I sense others doubting what I can do, my determination triples," says Margo on her quest to smash through the barriers.

Likened to plunging into an abyss, Corbet’s Couloir is America’s most feared ski run, terrifying to ski and snowboard even in the best conditions. Attempting it in icy conditions on mountain bikes is nothing short of insane, as Casey Brown and Cam Mccaul find out in the first ever two-wheeled descent of the route…
