An ordinary guy on a quest to break the world record for the fastest official run around the globe.

Who is Tim?

Born and bred in Brisbane, Australia, Tim grew up living a healthy, active lifestyle like most Aussie kids. But in his adolescence, the road to good health became an uphill battle, and before long, faced with a multitude of health issues, suddenly good health seemed out of reach. At his darkest hour, weighing in at 120kg Tim realised his lifestyle fuelled by poor diet, alcohol, corporate life and partying was likely to send him to an early grave.
