In a break from tradition, we offered a simple high quality prize, to our elite male and female winners at the 2013 GL3D. These were limited edition prints from Heather Dawe. Usually, the GL3D does not provide prizes for the winners but we felt that Heather’s prints would make a fantastic memento for what proved to be another great weekend of adventure in the Lake District.

Heather is a highly accomplished endurance athlete with a record of significant wins across almost every adventure sport including fell running, mountain biking, mountain marathons, triathlon and adventure racing. In recent years she has begun painting and has recently published a book called Adventures in Mind, which explores her motivation and passion for the mountains, endurance sport, statistics, maths and philosophy… it makes for a compelling and interesting read!
Heather's latest project is write a book and paint various pictures inspired by the visit of the 2014 Tour de France to her home county of Yorkshire. The book is an illustrated guide to the route and is is called, "A Bicycle Ride in Yorkshire" It has illustrations of some of Yorkshire's most famous and beautiful landmarks and scenery, alongside describing how it feels to cycle through and around this great county. This book is being financed by crowd funding through the Kickstarter website. If you are interested to learn more check out this link: A Bicycle Ride in Yorkshire.
