Andrew is a 61 year old multi-day endurance runner from Reading, UK and he just loves running! He has run 8 marathons in 8 Countries in 8 days, self supported and driving himself between each one – a world first. In July 2016, to celebrate his 6oth birthday he ran from the Atlantic coast in the west of Spain to the Mediterranean Sea on the east. A distance of 525 miles taking in an elevation of more than 100,000 feet – the equivalent of 4 ‘Everests’. As usual the run was self supported and he carried all his belongings in a 25ltr runner’s rucksack. This epic. life-changing adventure is the subject of a forthcoming book ‘Moving Mountains’.
To keep his hand in, earlier this year, he decided to run across Italy, once again self-supported. He covered the 300km and 20,000 ft in just 7 days running the equivalent of a marathon a day.
He has appeared in print, on BBC Radio 4 and was a two time guest on BBC Radio Berkshire. After his Italian odyssey he was featured on the Todd Nevins podcast and profiled on the Chris Gullibeau website – both popular American media institutions.
