    This August, when Lucy Shepherd’s initial teammates pulled out of the race, she was left scrambling to keep her dream of participating in PER alive. She’d met Tom Middleton once and remembered his love for adventures, and so he was her first contact. Then she reached to out Marty Adams, who she’d met in Corsica while on a journey to complete the taxing GR20 trek. Stuck for a third and final member, Lucy went to the London explorer’s club, hoping to find some like-minded candidates. There she met Tim Taylor, asked him to join the team, and the next day the four teammates were in Wales on their first intensive training weekend.

    While they’ve started out as almost-strangers, Shepherd is excited about the challenge ahead. “We are all adventurous souls,” she said. On their first training mission, they “jelled perfectly” and it was like they “had known each other for years.” Team T.B.C. plans to start out slowly, aiming to maintain a sustainable pace. For them, adventure racing is about living in the present and testing personal limits. “Our only goal is to do as best we can as a team,” said Shepherd. “We hope that means to finish, but with this race, you never can tell!”

    And what does TBC mean? Totally.Bloody.Capable!
