Latest news: Rosie runs from Brighton to Kathmandu
Global adventurer and author, Rosie Swale Pope (MBE) is running from Brighton to Kathmandu to raise awareness and funds for PHASE Worldwide’s work in Nepal.
Throughout her life Rosie has completed numerous marathons in some of the world’s most challenging terrains and has embarked upon many adventures including trekking across Chile on horseback and sailing across the globe in a small boat. In 2003, aged 57, she began a five-year run-around-the-world, travelling 20,000 miles to raise awareness for the early diagnosis of cancer, and to raise funds for an orphanage in Kitezh, Russia.
PHASE has organised for Rosie to carry a satellite tracker so that everyone can follow her journey in real time. Rosie started her run in Brighton in Autumn 2018 but was delivered the live tracker when she got to Czechia and it has started transmitting signals since then.
Longest Unsupported Solo World Run
Global adventurer Rosie Swale Pope is recognised as one of the world’s most courageous, gutsy women of her generation. She is the only person in history, man or woman, to have undertaken an epic solo, unsupported run around our world – over 20,000 miles facing extreme danger, bitter Siberian winters, wolves, axe men and desolate loneliness over nearly five years. Her international best-selling book ‘Just a little Run Around the World’, is Rosie’s understated, yet gripping account of the resilience of the human spirit to triumph over every adversity.
