The Dragon Run - A journey across Bhutan and the human spirit.

Come on out to The Radical Edge on Queen St. for a night of adventure, intrigue and unparalleded beauty.
Author, Tony Robinson-Smith, his wife Nadya, and ten Bhutanese college students set out to run 578 kilometres (360 miles) across the Kingdom of Bhutan in the Himalayas.
Joined by a stray dog, they

slogged over five mountain passes, bathed in ice-clogged streams, ate over log fires, and stopped at every store, restaurant, guesthouse, and dzong to raise money
for the Tarayana Foundation.
The “Tara-thon” was the first endeavour of its kind and gave 350 village children the chance to go to school. En route, the Long Distance Dozen met a Buddhist lama, a royal prince, aTibetan renegade, and a matriarch who told them the secret to long life.
On arrival in Thimphu, they were decorated by Her Majesty the Queen.
Join us as Tony walks us thorugh his expedition and imparts on us a sliver of the wisdom from the experiences that have changed him since returning from this journey. Come, be inspired and start planning your next adventure.
