10,000km in pursuit of a new World Record

Starting April 10th Mark will attempt to bring home the coveted Cairo to Cape Town World Record. Aiming at 150 miles a day this is unchartered territory – no-one has gone close to this quick through Africa.

Sponsorship for this expedition is from LDC, the Drum Property Group, Martin Currie, the Wood Foundation, the Weir Group and Endura. And the project has already raised over £30,000 for Orkidstudio, a humanitarian architecture and construction charity that Mark is proud to be Patron for. A huge thanks to all sponsors so far and please do follow the link and show your support.
