About the event

We invite you to the launch of the Running The World 196 challenge this September in Bristol. In 2018, I will be running a marathon in every country. That’s 196 marathons in 196 countries. It's going to take 550 days and result in (hopefully) around eight various world records. This is where it all begins.

What is included with the ticket?

- DRINKS ON ARRIVAL

- 3 COURSE DINNER SET MENU

- GLASS OF WINE PER PERSON

- 4 SPECIAL GUESTS

- AUCTION AND RAFFLE

- PROSTATE CANCER UK REP

- BAR HOSTED BY ‘ELEPHANT GIN’

- MUSIC TILL LATE

Special Guests

The special guest speakers are an eclectic and lively mix of endurance runners, mountaineers, charity fundraisers and some of the most remarkable people on the planet. This bunch is not to be missed. They are all incredibly passionate and talk with the highest authority on their subjects.

Including:

Rory Coleman

- UK’s Leading Marathon Performance Coach
- ULTRAmarathon and Marathon Legend - 9 Guinness World Records
- The 1000 Marathons Man
- One of the best running coaches around

Jeff Smith

- Owner of one of the best non-profit organisations 'Big Moose'
- Mountaineer and Endurance Athlete
- Mount Everest Summited 

Kevin Webber

- The most remarkable and lovely man you’ll ever meet and the whole reason that this event exists
- 2 x MDS Finisher
- Terminal Prostate Cancer both in inspiration and raising funds for Prostate Cancer UK.

Nick Butter

Nick is also the reason this event is taking place. Nick will leave the UK on January 6th 2018 to set the world record for running a marathon in every country in the world. Why? Because he met Kevin and was hugely inspired; so he wanted to do something ridiculous to raise cash and awareness for the charity Prostate Cancer UK.

- Ultra Runner and Adventurer
- Motivational Speaker
- Charity Fundraiser

Why is the event happening?

Tent 105 is the answer. All of the guest speakers you’ll be introduced to at this event were in the same place at the same time. The Sahara Desert to be precise. The rest is history. Nick met Kev and was inspired by his crazily positive attitude towards life despite facing living with terminal prostate cancer.
