World record-holder Nick Butter, who has run a marathon in every country of the world, will be giving a talk on his amazing feat at the Winding Wheel, Chesterfield, on November 18, 2021.

During his Run Britain challenge this year, Nick covered 5250 miles in 100days despite fracturing his shins by running the equivalent of double marathons daily which had never been done before. He was spurred on by the company of 1,200 local runners and between his extreme running stints he lived in a van.

Run Britain enabled Nick to raise awareness of, and funds for, The 196 Foundation which champions democratic donorship. The foundation requests small amounts of cash from donors who vote where the money should go to help one cause in the world per year.

Nick had a career in banking before he was one of the most widely travelled athletes on the planet, the author of a book entitled The Man Who Ran The World and became a motivational speaker.

Tickets cost £22.50 to the talk entitled Nick Butter – The Man Who Ran The World. To book, go to or call 01246 345222.
