52 Marathons Story

Tristan Miller ran 52 international marathons in 52 weeks in 2010. He had spent many years working in ad sales before the “call of the wild” took hold, a call prompted by the global economic crisis in which he was retrenched from Google. Instead of looking for a new job, he decided to take on a new challenge.

His tales of heroism and misfortune are dynamic and engaging, and his ability to sift through the lessons of his year and give insight into the profound changes that he went through has audiences engrossed in the story. Tristan even captured many of these moments on video, as he carried a camera while he was running in every corner of the world, making his presentation visually entertaining.

Tristan made national headlines before he left and then again on his return to Australia and his name has been in print in many languages around the world, creating thousands of avid international followers.

Tristan’s story shows that a regular guy can do incredible things with the right motivation. He’ll have people so inspired by the end of his talk that they’ll believe they can take on the world too!

Below you’ll see all of Tristan’s race destinations in 2010:

  1. Who paid for this world tour ????? As much as its motivating but from a practical view point , was there a sponsor here

  2. Not too many sponsors in a Global Crisis Ajinkya. Some help from Krys Global in the Cayman Islands, but mostly self funded.
