Extreme athlete Tomasz Drybala is getting ready to attempt running 24,800 miles – the circumference of the Earth. Drybala plans to spend more than three years running from London to Athens, from Cairo to Kuwait City, from Indonesia through South East Asia to Hong Kong, then from Los Angeles to New York.
The keynote speaker and meditation coach is paying for his attempt with his savings and sponsorships, and is making the run to raise money for UNICEF’s Ukraine Crisis Appeal. It’s his third challenge; the first was in 2019 when he walked five million steps in 100 days, while his attempt to run almost 7k miles from Hanoi to Bali was cut short when the pandemic locked everything down.
He plans to start his run in August.
