'In January 2016, I stepped on a running track for the first time.
The following August, I competed in the World Ultra-MultiEvent Championships.'

Having never set foot on a running track in her life, Lauren Hendry decided to sign up for the Tetra-Decathlon, competing alongside only 12 other women at the World Championships. The Tetra-Decathlon is a gruelling 14-event track and field competition, requiring a unique set of skills to complete.

This one woman show charts Lauren’s journey as she trains for and competes in the most taxing of sporting events. It asks pertinent questions about the psychology of sport and what drives us to compete, while celebrating coming last and then coming back for more.

Part of Festival 2018, the cultural programme of the Glasgow 2018 European Championships.
