It all began when Robâ€™s fiancÃ©, exasperated as he sat slumped in front of the television watching the London marathon, bet him 20p that heâ€™d never complete one such race. Watching 40,000 competitors as they raised Â£53 million for charity got him thinking, why didnâ€™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 â€“ Los Angeles to the White House Break the record for non-stop running covering 373.75 miles in 85 hours without sleep.
