This journey around the world is the culmination of everything I have practiced and built in the past twenty years. I believe that it’s possible to get around the world in 80 days by manpower, but this is a leap in performance and a step into the unknown.

Welcome to the Endurance podcast
Endurance is primarily a sports and adventure podcast. Mark is joined on many of the episodes by friend and performance manager Laura Penhaul. These conversations were started as a research project for the book ‘Endurance’ published by Global Cycling Network – so you can find many of these conversations written up in the ‘Wise Words’ sections of the book. The Endurance podcast is focussed on meeting the sports scientists, the support staff, the researchers, the entrepreneurs – the people you will rarely have heard of – but who are the experts at supporting endurance athletes and are at the forefront of endurance sports. Laura has been a physiotherapist at 4 Paralympic & Olympic Games, led the first female crew to row the Pacific Ocean and lead the Performance team for the ‘Around the World in 80 Days’ race. Young or old, female or male – endurance is the greater leveller in sport. We are all endurance athletes at heart – we can all go further.
