The feature documentary about Irishman Kevin Leahy, who finished both the MYAU and MLAU in one winter, is available on Amazon Prime now. It takes us back to the chaos of Covid-19 and what it meant to many athletes who were training and preparing, not really knowing what the next months would bring. The film also shows Kevin’s struggle with injury in the midst of it all and how he dealt with it, in the end achieving the goal he was going for.
Firepot is a UK company that offers super high quality dehydrated expedition meals. They will partner with MLAU and offer a 15% discount to all MLAU athletes and they also provide our crew with meals in remote locations on the trail.
They use a different approach to the more common freeze-dried options for outdoor eating. Typically, freeze-dried meals are made using ingredients that have been dried separately, so the first time the flavours meet is when you add water to the pouch. And you can taste the difference. They cook each meal by hand, just as you would at home. Firepot ingredients are simple, honest and fresh, for explorers, adventurers and athletes who care as much about the nature they put into their body as the wild places they venture.
So, needless to say that we are super excited to have Firepot on board!
