On Tuesday 11th November 2014 Audrey completed the gruelling Volcano Marathon and placed 3rd overall woman.

The marathon was run at altitude in the Atacama desert, starting at 14,500 ft. and finishing at 11,800 ft. with the majority of the race at or around 14,000 ft. Runners also had to contend with a stiff wind, temperatures in the high 20s, sand and significant climbs and technical terrain.

Audrey developed symptoms of altitude sickness at 25km, but continued and completed the race in 7 hrs. 16. minutes and required Oxygen at the finish. She will be writing blog entries about the event in due course.
