Okay so it’s not really a Burn event but at times Maria certainly felt the burn!
On the 27th December 2013, Maria Leijerstam, owner of the Burn Series, became the first person in the world to cycle from the edge of the Antarctic continent to the South Pole.
She also set the new World Record for the fastest human powered coast to pole traverse, completing her journey in 10 days, 14hrs and 56 minutes.
Find out more about her journey below. Maria is now available for after dinner talks, business functions and public speaking events.
