Nick Butter is the first and only person to run a marathon in every country in the world. He will be sharing photography, film, and outrageous tales which are utterly captivating and will certainly leave you inspired; if a little fidgety for adventure. Not to be missed.
On 6 January 2018, Nick Butter set out to achieve what had never been done. To run a marathon in every country in the world.
In just 674 days he returned exhausted, broken, but triumphant, and with a vast collection of tales to leave you open mouthed.
Very few people dare to simply visit every country. Those who do, take years, or a life time. Nick ran 26.2 miles (42km) in all 196 countries on earth. He did so in just 23 months. Battling war zones, wild time differences and over 100 degrees of temperature variation, he ran in every nation, faced muggings, dog attacks, border bribes, over 80 cancelled flights, and spent his life in 3 day cycles. Run, Rest, Travel, repeat, until the job was done. Pictures really do paint a thousand words. His photography is exceptional; a real glimpse into the vast diversity of our world.
''Nick’s passion is infectious, and he has the ability to share his extraordinary experiences with warmth, humour and humanity, and to make you feel as though you were right there with him every step of the way." Editor - Penguin Publishers
"Refreshing, talented and fascinating, Nick will inject a breath of fresh air into your event as he delivers an uplifting presentation – peppered with humour and illustrated with stunning photography and astonishing video – to motivate, energise and enthuse" HOC - Lloyds Banking Group
