Double Marathon Tour Of Europe..USA.. GLOBE

As you might know Adee, my wingman for the Cycling across the USA NYC to LA, broke his arm in early December. This caused a delay to the originally planned starting time of January 5th, which had a ripple effect of money lost on flights, bookings, insurance, film crew, and much more.

We struggled to get corporate sponsors to fill in the gap of this loss, but with such a short time frame, we just couldn't do it. We are still 100% starting the cycle on the 17th of March St Patrick's day 2023 in NYC. However, whether we have a professional film crew to properly document and film this amazing adventure, as well as act as the support team if we get injured or the bikes break down, is 100% up to you people.

Adee and I passionately believe that if we get a proper film/support crew for the whole trip, the money we'll raise will pay itself over by a huge amount. Selling the film to Netflix or Sky alone would likely cover the costs of making it right there and then. Money which will be donated straight away to Movember. And I'm sure you can imagine the more successful the documentary is, the more charity donations we'll raise for charity. Think of it like Live Aid 1985 vs a local pub hosting a charity karaoke. One certainly costs significantly more, but will also raise far more money.

However, if we do not reach the target of £30,000 in time, we'll just donate 100% of what was raised on this GoFundMe to the cancer research and mental health charity, Movember.

I'm also going to restart the Tattoo Tumour Tuesday for any company or person or organisation that wants to pool together like a school, university, group of friends, or sports team etc I'm gonna get 5cm squared of AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAnything. Not just words, anything at all. A company logo, a school/university/sports team's crest, a symbol, a drawing, a celebrity's face, a cartoon, or a landscape painting. As long as it's not blatantly racist like a swastika or extremely anti-gay etc, but if you want to make a dark/dirty joke, I will not refuse it. think of South Park as the level of censorship.

As well as this I'm running free fitness classes in GymBox in London, and Pub Quizzes in Brewdog around London. You pay as much or as little as you feel it's worth. I will be posting about these events on all of my Social Media Platforms, so if you're very interested be sure to turn notifications on.

For the tattoos, email [email redacted] while you do this you must also put in your request for what you want tattooed. Please be as detailed as possible. 5cm squared is the size of the tattoo and they will all be going on my leg. I'll then get back to you ASAP about further details. If for some reason I can't get the tattoo you want. I promise you I will find some way to make it up to you. Open talk and Q and A at your school/company/uni, organise a pub crawl/pub quiz/host a game night in your local area (I used to be a pub crawl guide, and host games and quizzes) run a fitness class or PT session. My point being as all the dodgy companies always say "100% satisfaction or your money back."

I have terminal brain cancer and am using that against itself to raise the most money ever for running a marathon, which is roughly £2,300,000. I'm not going to stop until I achieve this, it might not happen this year, but in the following year, I'll have a bigger following, and it'll make achieving it the second and third attempt more achievable.


So I need to think of the future, and as soon as I've been successful in breaking my first 2 world records, I'll take on the charity world record of the most money ever raised by a person, which is £32,796,155 by Captain Sir Tom Moore



To break this world record, I'm going to run 52 miles (an exact double marathon), in each of the 52 countries and territories of Europe, in 52 weeks (1 year). 2704 miles in total.


After that, I'm going to take a very long break and repeat the same endeavour in all 50 states of the USA, with 2 weeks in Canada and Mexico to bring the number of locations up to 52


Achieving these two feats is going to require professional paid BBC-level documentary filmmakers, who'll need to travel with me in either 1 big van/tour bus or multiple smaller ones (which I'd 100% call the Endeavour, The Endurance, or The Beagle), Equipment and supplies, which would surely cost far more than I originally predict.


The world record of £32,796,155 is an insanely large amount of money that needs investment. I hope you can see that any money you put towards this will be used to raise far more for cancer research in the long run (pun intended). Still, if nothing else, I will make it extremely entertaining, so you can think of it as health insurance for 1 in 2 of the population including yourself, and or a cinema ticket to the coolest travel documentary ever seen. 


The old phrase you gotta spend money to make money comes to mind. 



And then, after those warm-ups. IT'S THE BIG ONE, an idea I've had since I was a teenager staring at a map of the world. Circumnavigating the entire globe by manpower only. London-Australia swimming the channel, cycling to the Himalayas, running through them, kayaking through the islands of Indonesia, crossing Australia U-turn back from Sydney, up through china, across the Bering strait (hopefully WW3 dosen't gets in the way) across to Alaska, down to Argentina, then the second U-turn back up though brazil, east coast of the US, and Canada into the arctic circle (hopefully the ice caps aren't all melted) then down Greenland, Iceland and possible ending with the most dangerous and difficult part of the journey. Crossing the Atlantic to touch Irish soil, and running across the nation to Dublin. Hug the Mothership, firmly shake my Da's hand. And have a well-earned pint of vitamin G in the local while I contemplate on what psycho task I am going to put myself through next.
