A Briton became the first person to run across Africa


Russ Cook became the first person to run from one end of Africa to the other. He ran through rainforests, mountains and crossed the Sahara.

Russ Cook from Great Britain became the first person to run across Africa. The Guardian reported this.

The 27-year-old athlete ran more than 16,000 kilometers in 352 days in 16 countries. He started the race on April 22, 2023 from the southernmost coastal resort of Agulhas. On April 7, 2024, a man completed the race to the northernmost point of Tunisia – Res Engel.

Russ Cook ran through rainforests, mountains and across the Sahara. On the 200th day of the race, on the advice of doctors, he reduced his daily mileage.

“I spent a few days getting X-rays. In the end, the doctors found no damage to the bones, so I just had to take it easy and continue my walk,” he wrote then on social networks .

He also survived several setbacks, including being robbed at gunpoint in Angola, being imprisoned by machete-wielding men in the Republic of Congo, and struggling to get a visa. In particular, at the Algerian border he was not allowed to enter the country. However, after publishing a video message that was watched by more than 11 million people, the Algerian embassy in the UK granted him a visa.

The man called his run “the hardest challenge of my life.” However, he managed to raise over £600,000 for charity.

Funds raised will go to the Running Charity, which runs running and mental health programs for youth experiencing homelessness, and Sandblast, which raises awareness among the Saharawi people.

It was previously reported that Norwegian Ken Stornes, known for his extreme jumps, made a “leap of death” into the freezing water.

The athlete broke the 41-year-old world record in the 400 meters
