Mark Beaumont

Mark's documentaries, events and books about ultra endurance and adventure have taken audiences to over 100 countries. Outside of sport and broadcasting, Mark is a business ambassador and speaker, as well as working with a number of charities and educational organisations. Mark has been involved in adventure cycling since he was 12 years old. After completing a degree in economics and politics he decided that a city job could wait and went for broke with the biggest adventure he could dream of. Mark set a target of 195 days to cycle 18,000 miles – 100 miles a day with a day off every fortnight. Yet in training for this, he never did a single 100-mile training session. On April 3rd, Mark announced the Artemis World Cycle – his next Record Breaking quest to cycle around the World in 80 days.
