Over the next three years, 2022-2024, Tom will run 36,000 kilometres, which is equivalent to running around the globe, divided into three challenges:
Europe Ultra-Run (January 2022 to November 2022).
11,000 km from London, the United Kingdom to Venice, Italy. Running across the coast of the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea.
Arabian Peninsula Ultra-Run (December 2022 to May 2023).
5,000 km from Cairo in Egypt to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. Running through the coast of the Red Sea, passing the entire length of the Empty Quarter and the coast of the Persian Gulf.
North America Ultra-Run (June 2023 to December 2024).
20,000 km from Los Angeles to Los Angeles. Running around all 50 states (but not Alaska) across the coasts of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans and the borders of Canada and Mexico.
Tom will be followed by his team at the Land Rover Defender as they haul a custom build broadcast studio, ready to stream speeches and workshops for corporations, associations, government, and civic groups around the world.
We will conduct over 100 philanthropic events along the way to raise funds for UNICEF to help keep children safe and support the Wave Trust charity and the World Health Organization Task Force in connecting communities that are committed to preventing adverse childhood experiences and building trauma-informed societies.
The expedition is supported by a team of professors from the University of Westminster who conduct 3-year research into Tom's physical, mental and emotional endurance, and practice of mindful running and active meditation, entering the Flow and achieving peak performance.
