      EVENT DETAILS
      An Evening with Robert Young (Marathon Man UK)

      It all began when Rob’s fiancé, exasperated as he sat slumped in front of the television watching the London marathon, bet him 20p that he’d never complete one such race. Watching 40,000 competitors as they raised £53 million for charity got him thinking, why didn’t he do more? Early the next morning, he ran his first ever marathon and 365 days later he had completed a record 370 marathons. Spurred on by his difficult and abusive childhood Rob has been on a staggering journey of endurance determined to prove he could overcome such a challenging background, which has seen him: Break the world record for the most marathons run in a year, completing 370 in 365 days, totalling an astonishing 10,178 mile Win the 3000 mile USA Transcontinental Race – Los Angeles to the White House Break the record for non-stop running covering 373.75 miles in 85 hours without sleep. Raise £1000’s for the Dreams Come True, children’s charity JOIN US at an Evening with Robert Young to hear Rob’s amazing endurance story and to have the chance to speak to Rob on how you might prepare and take on your own challenge. All tickets include welcome refreshments.
