It’s the beginning of a record-breaking odyssey across six continents and through some of the most important historical events of our time.
Along the way, The Runningman’s path crosses with many interesting characters―some who offer help and wisdom―but as he soon learns, not everyone has good intentions.
Carrying little more than a map and a small backpack, he runs. Runs and runs through towns, cities, up mountains and across rivers and deserts, in a quest to conquer the last sporting milestone.
On the 30,000-mile journey to India Gate, The Runningman is hijacked at gunpoint in Panamá, he suffers from infection in The Amazon Jungle and endures treacherous blizzards and avalanches in The Himalayas.
He negotiates with guerrillas, endures swarms of flies and deadly snakes in Africa―and finds love on the way, to name but a few adventures.
His run becomes legendary and after six long years on the road, The Runningman achieves a global loop in New Delhi, India and is officially honoured by Guinness World Records as the first person to run around the world.
The rest, as they say, is history!
