Jesper Olsen, keen to get back out on the road is planning another feat of running longevity.
“The route will in general lead from the Northern point of Scandinavia and in Europe to the Southern tip of Africa. After this first half of the total challenge is completed the run reverses direction and, hopefully, continues North from the Southern tip of South America to the Northern point of New Foundland in Canada, North America.”
Jesper plans to spread the journey, of some 40,000 kms, out over several years starting in 2008 and finishing in 2010. The journey is still in the planning phase and the team has not been announced yet so checkout the site for details.
Also at this time Jesper has produced a book of his first journey circumnavigating the world from West to East which he completed in October 2005. The book is in Danish however and we await with anticipation the English version of his amazing adventure.
