In 2004-5 Jesper Olsen ran around the world in 'East-West' direction (London-Tokyo-Sydney-Perth-LA-NYC-London).
Now the 36-year-old Dane has decided to try a 'North-South' route (Europe-Africa-South America-North America). World Run Part 2 has already started in northern Norway.
Jesper plans to run every day until the finish point at St. Johns, Newfoundland is reached. The estimated running distance is 40.000 km (24.855 miles).
Sarah Barnett of Australia will be running the whole way with Jesper. They will be also joined by other runners, who are going to run a certain part of the journey.
