40,075 km Ultra-Run through North America, Oceania, Asia and Europe
On September 30, 2022, I started running the circumference of the Earth, 40,075 kilometres, nearly 25 000 miles. For 40 months, I will run across four continents and 22 countries, conducting hundreds of events at universities, colleges, businesses and government institutions, promoting my book, and participating in research led by leading UK sports scientists.
I volunteer in over 100 events to build trauma-informed communities and help people heal their childhood traumas through mindful movement. I'm fundraising for UNICEF, supporting child protection and education in Ukraine, Venezuela, Yemen, the Philippines and many other countries where UNICEF operates.
Distance ran: 1,076 km (669 miles)

I’m on a mission to reach a billion people with my message and build MindfulNner Community.
Create an authentic, valuable community with the centre of gravity around a deeply-held, clearly-expressed core purpose.
Involve active and passionate members to attract more participants, and with enough people contributing, grow the community big enough to achieve its core purpose.
