Adventure: Vegan Welsh 3000s Challenge

Last Saturday at the ungodly hour of 04:30 six other vegans and I assembled at Pen-y-Pass in Snowdonia to attempt, as far as we know, the world’s first vegan ultra-marathon. We aimed to cross three mountain ranges, and climb every peak in Snowdonia over 3,000 feet. But I had little idea what I was really letting myself in for…

Somehow I survived to tell the tale though, and my photos are now online. Thanks very much to everyone who sponsored our attempt. We've raised nearly £5,000 to help Sea Shepherd protect the world's whales and other marine creatures!

Interview: animal ethics, vegan ultramarathons and more

In my ARZone interview just published, “Andrew talks about his book The Costs and Benefits of Animal Experiments, the problem of vivisection, the use of other animals in veterinary schools, vegan ultramarathons and fitness, and much more. Approx. 44 min audio podcast.” I also include some interesting ultramarathon training tips involving vegan chocolate cake!

Interview: animal sentience and ethics

I was recently interviewed for WSPA’s Sentience Mosaic website (dedicated to the science of animal sentience), about animal sentience, animal experimentation, moral consideration of animals. The interview is here.
