Synopsis

Lowri has over twenty years’ experience of broadcasting. Her face is a familiar feature in adventure documentaries which follow her competing in some of the toughest endurance races in the world. She has lived with indigenous tribes and dived two and half miles down to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean to visit the wreck of Titanic.

Biography

Intrepid television presenter, Lowri Morgan, is no stranger to tough challenges. In the past she has taken on her share of extreme challenges and pushed herself to the very limit.

For a television programme, Lowri accepted the challenge of diving in a submersible to see the Titanic, one of only eighty people ever to do so. She also went diving in Haitian and Jamaican waters in search of the remains of the pirate Harry Morgan’s ship, on a documentary for HTV/S4C and Discovery.

Lowri, a self-confessed adrenaline junkie has represented Wales on the rugby field and, despite a serious knee operation and being told she would not be able to run competitively again, has competed in numerous marathons worldwide and completed the illustrious Ironman Challenge.

Her first Ultra Marathon was through the Jungle in the Amazon. In the heat and humidity of the jungle, out of the 150 top runners only 50 finished. Lowri managed to finish the race in the top ten in her first ever ultra-marathon. Her filming of Amazon won the top award Spirit of the Festival at the Celtic Media Festival.

Lowri's second series saw her pushing her boundaries and finding new ones as she prepared for the 6633 Ultra Marathon, one of the toughest challenges on the planet. In the freezing Arctic setting, competitors are pushed to their physical and mental limits as they strive to complete the 350-mile endurance in only eight days pulling fifty pounds’ worth of equipment on a sledge along the course. The night before the race she was voted ‘most likely to be first out’ by fellow competitor including marines and special forces. At the halfway mark she was the only one left standing. She continued alone and, despite having stress fractures to her lower legs, her face being swollen to three times its size and having to pull off her toenails to relieve stress, Lowri completed the race. Only five people in the world had ever done this previously.

Lowri won two awards for the programme following the race at the Welsh BAFTA’s Best Programme and Best Presenter, beating heavyweights, Rhod Gilbert and Huw Edwards. She has also won the National Adventurer Award.

She was one of the first ever female crew to complete and take line honours in the Three Peaks Yacht Race, which was filmed for Channel 4, and completed the 333, a running challenge in Snowdonia. She became the first person to run from North to South Wales via the country’s highest peaks in sixty hours soon after becoming a mother for the first time. Lowri has also cycled 2000km and climbed 22,000 metres, three times the height of Everest in the Pan Celtic race.

Her book Beyond Limits, now on its 4th Edition, follows her journey from being told she wouldn’t be able to run again to racing some of the World’s toughest races.

In talks Lowri tells her extraordinary journey, and speaks on team building, mindset, and pushing beyond your comfort zone.
