An Evening With Nick Butter - The Man Who Ran the World
If I’m lucky enough to get to the point in life when I’m old and grey, chatting with my grandchildren I want to know I’ve explored every inch of the planet. I believe that it’s the crazy things, the things that no one is doing, and the things that we’re afraid to do… which are in fact exactly that which leaves a positive mark on the world.”
An evening with Nick Butter.
On January 6th 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.
Sharing photography, film, and outrageous tales Nick’s talks are utterly captivating and will certainly leave you inspired; if a little fidgety for adventure. Not to be missed.
Warning – Talk may cause you to quit your job. Nick takes no responsibility of loss of income.
