I'm Nick Butter. I’m a British Endurance Athlete, Ultra Runner and Motivational Speaker. You can find me on Instagram
As it stands, I've currently ran 288 marathons in my lifetime, 31 ultras, 355 events and over 30,000 training miles.
What am I all about?
In simple terms I believe in leaving a legacy; a legacy that we all have an opportunity to leave the world better than we found it. 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 want to have exhausted every ounce of my potential, challenged myself beyond what is comprehendible and leave the planet knowing I did everything in my power to make the best use of my time; to love, to work hard, and to spend as little time as possible in the so-called comfort zone.
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.
Tomorrow is a maybe, but today is a privilege; let’s go make the most it.
What’s my next challenge and how can you get involved?
I am about to embark on a world record setting mission and I need your help. I am about to run a marathon in every country in the world. That’s 196 marathons in 196 countries in 550 days.
Why am I doing all this?
I am doing this to raise £250,000 for Prostate Cancer UK because a close friend of mine has terminal prostate cancer and likely won't be around when I return. This is for him. Please get involved and help.
