THE SWIM

The Swim Phase is a 34-kilometre swim across the infamous English channel, from Shakespeare's Cliff near Dover to Cap Gris Nez near Calais in France.

THE CYCLE

The Cycle and longest Phase will see me peddle over 10,000-kilometres from Calais in France, heading East across Europe and Asia into eastern India.

THE TREK

The third phase will see me cover over 900-kilometres on foot, from sea level at Digha beach in West Bengal in India to Nepal, Kathmandu.

THE CLIMB

The fourth and final phase will see me cover over 350-kilometers from Kathmandu to the Himalayas and to the foot of Mt Everest before climbing to the top of the world.

THE ROUTE

After stage one and swimming the channel from Shakespeare's Cliff near Dover to Cap Gris Nez near Calais in France, I will be swapping the speedos for the bike and begin the longest leg of the expedition. The cycle and stage 2. The route will continue along the coast past Dunkirk before crossing into Belgium and passing through Brussels. I will then cross briefly through the Netherlands before crossing into Germany and heading southeast, passing through Frankfurt and Nuremberg eventually reaching Austria. From Austria, the route will take me through Vienna and continue into Hungary, through Székesfehérvár and Szeged and continuing to Romania. Passing through Timisoara and cycling alongside the Serbian border, I will cross the Danube into Bulgaria and continue on until the Turkish border. From here we will cross Istanbul and officially cross into Western Asia. The route continues east across northern Turkey until the Iranian border and crossing into Razi. From here the route continues over 2500km southeast through Iran until finally reaching Pakistan on its southwest border. From the western edge of Pakistan, we will continue east until crossing into Rajasthan and eastern India. Continuing 2000 kilometres east and then southeast through northern India towards West Bengal, we will eventually reach the finish line for stage 2 at Digha beach, over 10,000 kilometres after setting off from Calais.

From Digha Beach, stage 3 will officially begin. For next month, 900 kilometres or the equivalent of 22 marathons will be completed on foot. The route heads north before turning slightly northwest towards our next goal, the capital of Nepal, Kathmandu. 

From Kathmandu, we enter the final stage. The climb begins. A 350-kilometre trek southeast and then north from Kathmandu, sees us climb all the way to Lukla and then to the foot of Mt Everest before climbing and standing on top of the world.

All routes and details are subject to a slight change and updates will depend on a variety of factors.
