8.00pm – 9.30pm Auditorium
Following a sold-out lecture at Kendal Mountain Festival, we are excited to announce Mark Beaumont is coming to Durham. Full of passion and relatable experiences, join us to hear Mark share his motivations, challenges and highlights, fresh from setting his new world record!
On 2 July 2017, Mark set off from Paris and returned to the same spot 79 days later having completed an incredibly distance of 18,000 miles and spending over 16 hours a day in the saddle. Mark’s achievements don’t stop there: this was actually his second round-the-world journey, completing the trip in 194 days back in 2008.
Not to be missed!
