Reserve Tickets For Jesper Olsen World Run Project Lecture - March 24, 2006

On October 23, 2005 Dane Jesper Kenn Olsen, 35, became the first person to successfully run, in daily increments ranging from 14-93km, one lap around the Earth on land masses, setting a record with the Guinness Book of World Records.

What began from the Old Royal Observatory in Greenwich, London, England on January 1, 2004, ended there 26, 323km later on October 23, 3005 - ONE LAP AROUND THE WORLD!

During his World Run Jesper passed through Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, and was immediately adopted by the local ultrarunning community. All that have met him were inspired by his humble spirit, determination and humour.

During his lecture, you will have the opportunity to hear first hand from Jesper himself how the impossible became reality, not only from the perspective of an ultrarunner, but from that of a University of Copenhagen scholar of international politics.

Jesper will be back in Vancouver to present "Jesper Olsen, World Run: One Earth, 26,000Km, 2 Years, 1 Runner" on Friday, March 24, 2006 at 7:30pm at the Centennial Theatre in North Vancouver, BC, Canada.
