Welcome to the Peak Endurance podcast! Episode 113 is an interview with Stephanie Case. Stephanie is a human rights lawyer, ultra-distance runner and women’s rights advocate with expertise in conflict settings and humanitarian emergencies. In 2009, she gave up a career in corporate law to work for the United Nations (UN) in Afghanistan, Palestine, Malaysia, Switzerland and the United States, and for non-governmental organizations across Africa. She founded Free to Run in 2014 with the aim of ensuring that women and girls in areas of conflict are able to safely and boldly engage in outdoor adventure and develop the skills necessary to become leaders in their communities. Recently she was awarded the Meritorious Service Medal (Civil Division), on behalf of the Governor General of Canada’s office. This award celebrates Canadians who have performed an exceptional deed or activity that brings honour to Canada. They recognize remarkable contributions in many different fields of endeavour, from advocacy initiatives and health care services, to research and humanitarian efforts. The contributions can be innovative, set an example for others to follow, or improve the quality of life of a community. If this episode we discuss her charity, how she trained when she was in Afghanistan, how we met at Barkley and her experiences racing, particularly Tour Des Geants.
