A book about Nick’s 674-day epic adventure; a journey to be the first person to run marathon in every country in the world. 

While setting eight world records and covering five thousand miles, Nick explored the world and discovered its diversity and what we have in common throughout different cultures.

Running through cities and deserts, around islands, along beaches and through lush vegetation, Nick was often joined by local supporters and fellow runners, curious children and bemused passers-by, who kept him company and shared their stories. These meetings and connections gave his journey extra meaning.
