For the Love of Mary
Try telling 97-year-old George Etzweiler you're too old for running! He started competing in the annual 7.6 mile race up Mount Washington aged 69... and still takes part nearly 30 years later. And more important than his lucky green running shorts, George carries something special in every step: the memory of his late wife of 68 years, Mary.

Reel Rock - Break on Through
The grade 5.15 in climbing is described as a number representing the unattainable, a ‘magical barrier’ similar to breaking the four-minute mile. At the start of 2017, only a few male climbers had achieved the grade and no women. Enter an exceptionally driven 19-year-old, Margo Hayes. “When I sense others doubting what I can do, my determination triples," says Margo on her quest to smash through the barrier.
FILMMAKERS: Peter Mortimer, Matty Hong, Nick Rosen & Zachary Barr

A former world champion sport climber who’s also into base jumping, at 40 Liv set out to climb all 82 of the 4,000m peaks in the European Alps in a single year, skiing and paragliding down where possible.
