Over the next three years, 2021-2024, Tom will run 36,000 kilometres, which is equivalent to running around the world, divided into two challenges:
European Ultra Run. 16,000 km from London, the UK to Istanbul, Turkey, across the coasts of the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea.
American Ultra Run. 20,000 km from Los Angeles to Los Angeles, running around all 50 states, but not Alaska; through 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.
