Working on world record winning attempts, ultra endurance events and extreme expeditions in some of the most spectacular and exciting locations in the world can be the experience of a lifetime.
We’ve positioned therapists on extreme polar expeditions, the incredible Mt Blanc to Mte Sinto event, many Land's End to John o' Groats cycling expeditions and lots more. We say: the more extreme - the more it suits us!
Recent highlights include:
• Mark Beaumont's Record Breaking Round-the-World Cycle
• Andy McMenemy's World Record for 66 ultra marathons in 66 days
• The Home Expedition: Running the Silk Road from Turkey to China via Iran
What is it like to break a world record?
Mark Beaumont entered the history books in 2008, breaking the Guinness World Record for circum-navigating the globe. 18,000 miles through 16 countries on a bicycle! Athletes' Angels were involved from the start, organising Mark's medical, physio and sports massage, before, during and after his race around the globe. Watch a great video of Fiona Lindsay, Founder of Athletes' Angels chatting to the BBC in Paris.
