Run 27 marathons in 27 days? Who does that?
Rosie Swale Pope does.
Is the only person to take on and complete an epic, self-supported run around the world (21,000 miles) facing a bitter Siberian winter, wolves and desolate loneliness
Completed a record breaking solo transatlantic voyage in a 17 foot boat
Competed twice in the ‘toughest footrace on Earth’ the Marathon des Sables
Rode 3,000 miles on horseback from that Atacama Desert to Patagonia
In 2015, at age 68, ran from New York to San Francisco - a total of 3,371 miles
What motivates this unbelievable 71 year old?
Rosie Swale Pope was brought up in Ireland by her bedridden grandmother. She was taught by her grandmother to reach for the stars and never give up, something Rosie took to heart.
Her self-supported run around the world was driven by her desire to raise cancer awareness after her husband, Clive, died of prostate cancer in 2002.
Everyone who has met Rosie remarks on her love of life, enthusiasm and exuberance - a woman who is living life to the fullest, enjoying every moment.
Her book "Just a Little Run Around the World: 5 Years, 3 Packs of Wolves and 53 Pairs of Shoes" is an inspirational best-seller.
Rosie is an exceptional storyteller and when she isn’t on an adventure, she is a high demand corporate speaker whose messages are full of the life enriching lessons we all need to hear in these challenging times.
