On Saturday February 27th, 2016 I began a walk around the world!
I will be walking the world with a cancer awareness message;
Life is precious, early checking saves lives.
Starting from Run Logic's running store in Dublin’s Temple Bar, we will meet at two pm February 27th, 2016 and leave at three pm. Please follow my new blog for the walk ( Click Here ) or my Facebook page!
After I first got the idea to run around the world I didn’t see how I could do it without a support vehicle. As running is more problematic than walking I decided instead of running the world that I would walk it! In 1998, I was living in Lake City, Colorado. I returned to Ireland I decided that one day I would find a way to live my ultimate dream, to run around the world ( As many of you know I achieved that in Oct 2014)
So, this world walk is my other long cherished dream :-)
Last Monday I was welcomed by The Lord Mayor of Dublin, this is becoming a habit! Thank you Lord Mayor Criona Ni Dhalaigh for my latest Magic Letter! I will be walking the world with a cancer awareness message; life is precious, early checking saves lives.
Distance walked so far 27,000+ km ( 16,777 Miles )

"Life is precious - Early cancer screening saves lives. So far on this walk four people told me they went for screening and 'nasty things were discovered ' That my friends is my fuel, the octane that drives me around the world as I have known many people who did not have the luxury of early detection." Tony Mangan 10/2017

Tony's Wikipedia Page
Tony had a very successful competitive career winning many ultra races and proudly represented Ireland on six occasions.
In addition to being the first runner in history to run two consecutive days of over 200 kilometres (223 and 203) he has broken four world records. Two of these he still holds as he walks around the world: He is the current world 48 hour indoor track record holder (426.178 km. He also holds the world 48 hour treadmill record (405.22 km)
This is his third time
Around the world as he previously cycled it as a 22 year old.
Coming Soon... Tony's new book !
This counter counts the visits by country of visitors to this site! Added 30th July, 2018 after the old one went out of business
See where he is walking today!
The plan going forward is: On the 13th July, I fly to Bangkok, Thailand and will walk north to Laos, Vietnam and then I plan to re-enter China at a border crossing where I walked south from in April 2017. That will mean that I will be reconnecting with my old route when I walked south from Mongolia through the center of China. This time I will walk east and along the east coast of China to Macao, Hong Kong and then a ferry over to Taiwan. After a lap of the island (circa 1,000 kilometers), I will return to the mainland to walk towards Shanghai and then a ferry to South Korea. After another ferry to Japan, I will walk in the region of 4,000 km there. This leg should take about a year before I hit North America!
As you can see there are a few ferries and a couple of expensive flights here. Other expenses are visas, travel insurance and a new three-year hosting subscription for my old world run website www.theworldjog.com/blog
In light of all of this expense, I was absolutely delighted when Daniel Marshall and Lewis Hartman gave me super-generous donations towards these expenses to keep my global march for cancer awareness going! Please remember that early screening saves lives.
