-Television presenter, Lowri Morgan

-is facing another massive challenge.

0:00:030:00:07

-Following her success

-in the 2009 Jungle Marathon...

0:00:100:00:14

-..she'll replace

-the humidity of the Amazon...

0:00:140:00:18

-..with the freezing extremities

-of the Arctic.

0:00:180:00:21

-Lowri faces a colossal challenge.

0:00:490:00:52

-She'll travel from Wales to Canada

-and the Arctic Circle...

0:00:520:00:56

-..to compete in the 6633 Ultra race.

0:00:560:01:00

-She'll run 350 miles

-over eight days...

0:01:010:01:04

-..in this non-stop,

-self-sufficient race.

0:01:040:01:08

-Temperatures fall to -93 degrees

-Celsius in the strong winds.

0:01:080:01:13

-This race has only been

-completed seven times.

0:01:130:01:18

-Three months before the race...

0:01:230:01:25

-..Lowri trains

-on all terrain in all weathers.

0:01:250:01:30

-She's currently running 125 miles...

0:01:310:01:35

-..and completing

-30 hours of training a week.

0:01:350:01:39

-Lowri recently visited Sweden...

0:01:420:01:45

-..to familiarize herself with the

-conditions she'll face in the Yukon.

0:01:450:01:50

-She was shocked

-that the bitterly cold weather...

0:01:510:01:53

-..affected her both physically

-and psychologically.

0:01:540:01:58

-She received specialist training

-in the snow from elite soldiers.

0:01:590:02:03

-The message is clear.

-Fitness is not enough.

0:02:030:02:07

-She must practise using

-the specialist gear repeatedly...

0:02:080:02:12

-..and know how to gain easy access

-to it at all times.

0:02:130:02:18

-This spells the difference

-between success and failure.

0:02:180:02:23

-I've had an emotional day.

0:02:260:02:28

-I don't usually cry,

-but I haven't stopped today.

0:02:280:02:32

-It's been three days

-since I returned from Sweden.

0:02:320:02:37

-The fear has taken hold today.

0:02:370:02:43

-I've struggled with my breathing

-and I've been panicking.

0:02:440:02:50

-I don't want to do it anymore.

0:02:520:02:55

-And yet,

-I've spoken on the telephone...

0:02:550:02:57

-..to Eurwyn...

0:02:580:03:00

-..and Nigel.

0:03:010:03:03

-They are all so supportive.

0:03:030:03:05

-The strain is starting to show.

0:03:090:03:12

-The months of endless training...

0:03:120:03:14

-..and the bitter shock in Sweden

-has frightened her.

0:03:140:03:19

-But, Lowri Morgan is very stubborn

-and her perseverance is legendary!

0:03:190:03:24

-After a short break,

-and some snowfall in Wales...

0:03:240:03:28

-..she continues the exercises

-she learnt in Sweden.

0:03:290:03:33

-It's a few days before Christmas.

0:03:350:03:37

-It's -6 degrees Celsius.

0:03:370:03:40

-Believe it or not,

-I'm going to sleep outside...

0:03:400:03:43

-..in the bivvy bag

-and sleeping bag.

0:03:440:03:48

-I can hear carol singers

-in the next street.

0:03:480:03:52

-It's lovely, isn't it?

0:03:530:03:54

-Goodnight.

0:03:550:03:56

-I have to learn

-to take my coat off.

0:04:000:04:03

-Oh, gosh!

0:04:040:04:07

-It's the middle of the night

-and I can't sleep.

0:04:090:04:15

-I'm not as cold as I was in Sweden.

0:04:160:04:19

-I'm sleeping outdoors so that I can

-practise using the gear.

0:04:220:04:27

-Oh, the light has gone out.

0:04:270:04:29

-Here I am.

0:04:350:04:37

-All alone.

0:04:380:04:40

-In Sweden, the pulk

-was assembled incorrectly...

0:04:440:04:47

-..so it has been sent back

-to be repaired.

0:04:470:04:51

-Lowri cannot use this

-as an excuse to relax.

0:04:510:04:55

-I'm running 100 miles tomorrow

-and I'm sick with fear.

0:04:560:05:00

-I've never run

-100 miles non-stop before.

0:05:000:05:05

-I don't know what to expect

-and it's terrifying me.

0:05:070:05:13

-The location is Brecon.

0:05:160:05:18

-The challenge commences

-at Talybont-on-Usk.

0:05:180:05:21

-She must complete

-a 23-mile course twice...

0:05:210:05:25

-..before running the

-58-mile journey home to Gowerton.

0:05:260:05:31

-It's a total of 104 miles.

0:05:310:05:34

-It's going to be a long, lonely,

-difficult and painful weekend...

0:05:380:05:44

-..but it's very important.

0:05:440:05:46

-On paper, it was a great idea,

-but I am questioning it now.

0:05:460:05:51

-I'll try to run 100 miles today and

-be on my feet as much as possible.

0:05:510:05:57

-It sounds overwhelming but every

-journey starts with the first step.

0:05:580:06:03

-We'll see how it goes.

0:06:050:06:08

-Three... two... one... go!

-Have a great race.

0:06:120:06:18

-I've been running for 30 minutes.

0:06:440:06:46

-I'm tired

-and I don't want to run this race.

0:06:470:06:50

-I don't know how I'll finish the

-45 miles, let alone the 100 miles!

0:06:500:06:55

-At the moment,

-I'm not in the right frame of mind.

0:06:550:07:00

-My thoughts are all over the place

-and I want to be at home on my sofa.

0:07:000:07:05

-It doesn't look too promising.

0:07:060:07:09

-Oh, dear, dear, dear.

0:07:240:07:27

-I don't want to be here.

0:07:270:07:30

-There are only negative thoughts

-in my head...

0:07:300:07:34

-..and that isn't good.

0:07:340:07:36

-I'm not even a quarter of the way

-through this race.

0:07:360:07:40

-After three hours of running

-and gathering her thoughts...

0:07:540:07:57

-..Lowri finally finds her rhythm.

0:07:570:08:01

-I feel so much better.

-I'm in the zone now.

0:08:020:08:06

-167.

0:08:080:08:10

-It's been a very emotional journey

-so far.

0:08:160:08:19

-I've run 33 miles and now the pain

-is reaching my joints.

0:08:190:08:24

-I've got to keep plodding on.

0:08:250:08:28

-This is training for the Arctic and

-I need to keep telling myself that.

0:08:290:08:33

-This is just training

-for the Arctic.

0:08:340:08:36

-This result is not important...

0:08:370:08:39

-..as it's just another stage

-in my preparations.

0:08:390:08:42

-Come on, Lowri!

0:08:530:08:55

-The first stage is over and Lowri

-is in 6th place in the women's race.

0:08:580:09:03

-Your time is 10:05:41. Well done!

0:09:040:09:07

-Your time is 10:05:41. Well done!

-

-Thank you.

0:09:070:09:08

-Yeah!

0:09:090:09:10

-The only problem is

-that I have to run home now.

0:09:110:09:14

-First, a light snack and some

-much-needed treatment for her feet.

0:09:180:09:23

-My nails are coming off. This one

-is coming off and so is that one.

0:09:230:09:28

-And I've got a blister here.

0:09:290:09:32

-Oh dear, I'd never make it

-as a foot model!

0:09:320:09:36

-Despite her feet,

-Lowri is back on the road.

0:09:400:09:43

-It's going to be long,

-painful and difficult.

0:09:430:09:47

-I've run 53 miles

-and I don't know how I feel.

0:09:540:09:58

-I think I'm in the zone.

0:09:580:10:02

-I'm in a lot of pain

-but need to keep going.

0:10:020:10:07

-One foot in front of the other.

0:10:070:10:09

-Mam says

-that the tortoise always caught up!

0:10:090:10:13

-I'm just...

0:10:130:10:15

-..trying to keep going.

0:10:160:10:19

-It's the middle of the night...

0:10:320:10:35

-..and this is when

-the hard work begins...

0:10:360:10:40

-..because the body

-just wants to sleep.

0:10:400:10:43

-However...

0:10:430:10:45

-..it's horrendous

-to fight against the fatigue.

0:10:460:10:50

-I'm really struggling...

0:10:500:10:53

-..but am confident

-that I can do this.

0:10:530:10:58

-I didn't feel confident earlier,

-but I do now.

0:10:580:11:02

-I've been running for 75 miles

-and it's getting very difficult.

0:11:100:11:14

-It's also emotional because

-I'm passing my childhood haunts.

0:11:150:11:20

-I've passed the Gwyn Arms...

0:11:210:11:22

-..where I would go swimming

-in the river with Auntie Glenys.

0:11:230:11:26

-I pass there at 12.30am...

0:11:270:11:31

-..and recall the fond memories

-of times spent in these places.

0:11:310:11:35

-During this journey,

-I'm almost stepping back in time.

0:11:360:11:40

-I can't work it out

-because I'm so tired.

0:11:560:12:00

-It's been 20 hours so far...

0:12:000:12:03

-..and there are four miles to go.

0:12:040:12:09

-My mind has slowed down.

-I'm too tired to think.

0:12:100:12:15

-The bottom of my feet

-are all bruised...

0:12:160:12:20

-..and it's difficult

-to put weight on them.

0:12:200:12:24

-Every muscle

-in my body is hurting...

0:12:240:12:28

-..and the next four miles

-will feel like a marathon in itself.

0:12:280:12:33

-Finally...

0:12:450:12:46

-..I'm home.

0:12:470:12:49

-I'm so tired.

0:12:510:12:53

-I had a love-hate relationship

-with this challenge.

0:12:530:12:59

-I have to admit

-that I hated about 80% of it...

0:12:590:13:03

-..and loved only 20% of it.

0:13:030:13:06

-The final 20 miles were a nightmare.

0:13:070:13:11

-The thought of this experience

-makes me shake all over...

0:13:110:13:15

-..but I've done it despite the fact

-that my body is falling apart.

0:13:150:13:21

-I feel sick, I'm tired...

0:13:220:13:25

-..and every muscle

-in my body is hurting.

0:13:250:13:30

-I don't know

-how I'll cope in the Arctic...

0:13:310:13:34

-..but I've covered

-just over 100 miles...

0:13:340:13:38

-..in 21 hours.

0:13:390:13:41

-It's time for bed. Goodnight!

0:13:440:13:47

-Despite her success

-in the Beacons...

0:13:520:13:54

-..Lowri is still concerned

-about the race in the Arctic Circle.

0:13:540:13:58

-I've been very naive

-agreeing to do this race.

0:13:590:14:03

-I'm not sleeping at night.

-I'm so worried about it.

0:14:040:14:08

-Is this challenge

-going to break her?

0:14:080:14:12

-.

0:14:170:14:19

-Lowri Morgan is training for

-the greatest challenge of her life.

0:14:220:14:26

-It's an ultra race

-in the Arctic Circle.

0:14:260:14:29

-There are only two months left.

0:14:290:14:31

-During her training

-throughout the year...

0:14:370:14:39

-..Lowri has covered over 3,500 miles

-on all terrain...

0:14:400:14:44

-..and her feet

-are in a seriously bad way.

0:14:450:14:49

-It's come to the point...

0:14:500:14:52

-..where my toenails

-have finally had enough of my body!

0:14:530:14:56

-I've had enough of them too!

0:14:580:15:01

-Just come off.

0:15:010:15:04

-Oh, that's it.

0:15:080:15:09

-Oops!

0:15:120:15:14

-With forty days left...

0:15:140:15:17

-..she visits Dyfri Owen,

-the physiotherapist, for treatment.

0:15:170:15:22

-Hi, Dyfri. Thank you for seeing me.

0:15:220:15:24

-Hi, Dyfri. Thank you for seeing me.

-

-No problem at all. Take a seat.

0:15:240:15:27

-How was the 100-mile run?

0:15:270:15:30

-How was the 100-mile run?

-

-Difficult and long.

0:15:300:15:32

-Unfortunately, I have a list

-of complaints for you, Dyfri.

0:15:320:15:36

-I'm in a little bit of pain.

0:15:360:15:39

-Let's hear this list.

0:15:390:15:40

-Let's hear this list.

-

-My ankles.

0:15:400:15:43

-My knees are fine if you consider

-all they have had to withstand.

0:15:430:15:48

-The base of my spine

-and the nape of the neck.

0:15:490:15:52

-Anything else?

0:15:530:15:55

-Let's take a look at you.

0:15:570:15:59

-Lift your foot and keep it raised.

0:16:020:16:05

-Alright?

0:16:090:16:10

-Was that it?

0:16:100:16:11

-Was that it?

-

-No.

0:16:110:16:12

-I'll just lift this gently.

0:16:130:16:16

-I can't believe how quickly

-it's healed. You're a star, Dyfri!

0:16:250:16:29

-Thank you.

0:16:300:16:31

-Thank you.

-

-No problem.

0:16:310:16:32

-Her body is rejuvenated and

-Lowri has returned to her training.

0:16:340:16:39

-The preparations must continue.

0:16:390:16:42

-Today has been a complete contrast

-to yesterday.

0:16:430:16:47

-Yesterday, I loved running

-and had a beaming smile on my face.

0:16:470:16:52

-Today, it's been painful.

0:16:520:16:56

-I've hated every second...

0:16:560:16:59

-..of the seven hours of running

-I've done today.

0:16:590:17:03

-It's been murder...

0:17:030:17:06

-..both physically and mentally.

0:17:060:17:10

-Dyfri worked her body, but it's

-also important to care for her mind.

0:17:100:17:15

-She seeks advice from Ross Hall,

-a sports psychologist...

0:17:150:17:19

-..who has assisted her

-since the start of her journey.

0:17:190:17:23

-For Lowri, these events

-are about pushing herself...

0:17:240:17:27

-..physically and mentally.

0:17:270:17:29

-Putting herself in a position where

-everybody thinks she's crazy...

0:17:290:17:34

-..and proving to herself

-that it's why she does these events.

0:17:340:17:38

-It's about competing

-against herself.

0:17:380:17:41

-She gets a feeling of self-worth

-and success from her achievements.

0:17:410:17:46

-For some it's about their house

-or their expensive car.

0:17:460:17:50

-For Lowri, none of that matters.

0:17:500:17:52

-It's about herself

-competing against herself...

0:17:520:17:56

-..to prove what she can do,

-physically and mentally.

0:17:560:18:00

-With the race so close, it's

-now about rehearsing strategies...

0:18:030:18:07

-..and practice, practice, practice.

0:18:070:18:10

-With only a week until she leaves

-for the Yukon, she does just that.

0:18:120:18:17

-She completes 12-hour

-training sessions...

0:18:180:18:20

-..and practises repeatedly

-with her equipment.

0:18:200:18:24

-As the big day approaches...

0:18:240:18:26

-..she thinks of the support she has

-received throughout this journey.

0:18:260:18:31

-I've received tremendous support

-from my husband and family.

0:18:320:18:38

-They are the only ones

-who know what I've been through.

0:18:380:18:42

-They have been there

-during the good and bad times.

0:18:420:18:46

-They were there

-when I wanted to give up.

0:18:460:18:51

-I've learnt so much about myself

-over the last year.

0:18:530:18:58

-I also know that this race...

0:18:590:19:02

-..will be the toughest and most

-painful of my life experiences.

0:19:020:19:08

-But, I'll learn

-so much more about myself.

0:19:090:19:14

-I'm looking forward to that.

0:19:150:19:18

-After a year of preparation...

0:19:230:19:26

-..and with the best wishes

-of her friends and family...

0:19:260:19:29

-..the adventure gets under way.

0:19:300:19:32

-Lowri leaves London

-and travels for 36 hours...

0:19:390:19:43

-..to the capital

-of the Yukon territory, Whitehorse.

0:19:440:19:47

-When gold was discovered

-in Klondike in 1896...

0:19:480:19:52

-..thousands moved to the city

-in search of their fortune.

0:19:530:19:56

-The competitors met at Whitehorse...

0:19:560:19:59

-..under the watchful eye

-of the race director, Martin Like.

0:19:590:20:02

-Label your drop bags accordingly

-for MacPherson.

0:20:030:20:06

-Before the world's

-toughest race begins...

0:20:070:20:10

-..competitors must prove they are

-confident with their equipment...

0:20:100:20:16

-..and that they can cope

-in a crisis.

0:20:160:20:19

-It's such a faff!

0:20:190:20:21

-You need patience for this.

0:20:210:20:24

-Don't panic.

0:20:250:20:27

-Lowri and the others

-pass the test...

0:20:310:20:33

-..then begin

-their 500-mile journey...

0:20:330:20:36

-..to the start line at Eagle Plains,

-stopping halfway at Dawson City...

0:20:360:20:41

-..the Wild West of the north!

0:20:410:20:44

-After two days at Whitehorse...

0:20:460:20:49

-..it's psychologically liberating

-to visit Dawson City.

0:20:490:20:55

-I can appreciate the area...

0:20:550:20:57

-..and think of those who came here

-100 years ago in search of wealth.

0:20:580:21:03

-Many of the immigrants

-were from Wales.

0:21:030:21:06

-Now, my heart is pounding as I think

-of the journey to Eagle Plains.

0:21:060:21:12

-First, I've got one thing

-left to do - the Sourtoe Cocktail!

0:21:120:21:18

-I don't want to do it

-but it's a local custom...

0:21:190:21:23

-..and a tradition in this race.

0:21:230:21:25

-I don't have much choice.

0:21:260:21:28

-Drink it fast or drink it slow.

0:21:290:21:31

-As the competitors

-gather at Dawson City...

0:21:310:21:34

-..they must each drink

-at least one Sourtoe Cocktail.

0:21:350:21:38

-Cheers!

0:21:380:21:40

-Why is it called a Sourtoe?

0:21:400:21:43

-The cocktail contains a toe

-that was removed due to frostbite.

0:21:450:21:50

-Like the Amazon, on the night

-before the start of the race...

0:21:530:21:57

-..I've been thinking

-of the past year.

0:21:570:22:00

-We've driven along the Dempster

-Highway to Eagle Plains today...

0:22:010:22:06

-..and the scenery

-has been breathtaking.

0:22:060:22:09

-This place is stunningly beautiful

-and so quiet.

0:22:090:22:14

-There's no room for complacency as

-this area demands focused attention.

0:22:140:22:20

-The Arctic may be beautiful

-but it has a sting in its tail.

0:22:200:22:25

-With only twelve hours

-before the race starts...

0:22:270:22:30

-..I know it'll be painful,

-it's going to hurt...

0:22:310:22:35

-..and it will push my personal

-boundaries, but I'll form new ones.

0:22:350:22:41

-If I can carry out this challenge...

0:22:420:22:44

-..regardless of whether or not

-I cross the finish line...

0:22:450:22:48

-..knowing that I've given my all

-in the struggle...

0:22:480:22:52

-..then I'll be happy and content

-leaving Canada.

0:22:520:22:55

-I'm both excited

-and terrified about this race...

0:22:560:22:59

-..but it's time to face my fears...

0:23:000:23:02

-..to look in the eye of this race

-and step up to the challenge.

0:23:030:23:08

-Next time on Ras Yn Erbyn Amser,

-it's a great start in the Yukon.

0:23:140:23:18

-I'm in a brilliant position

-and I'm loving the challenge so far.

0:23:190:23:25

-Will Lowri succeed?

0:23:250:23:26

-It's up to me. I feel so frustrated.

0:23:270:23:29

-Just, just...

0:23:300:23:32

-..carry on going!
