Alastair Humphreys is an adventurer, author and motivational speaker. He was a National Geographic Adventurer of the Year in 2012.
Alastair Humphreys is one of National Geographic’s Adventurers of the Year, an accomplished speaker, and a best-selling author. You can watch him speaking in the video at the bottom of this page. Alastair’s expeditions are a call to arms that nothing is achieved without being bold enough to begin it and that the first step need only be a tiny one to set us on the way to realising that we are all capable of more than we imagine.
Alastair has spent years tackling adventures that are simple but not easy and values the crucial difference between those two words. Each journey has generated a wealth of great stories, whether it is cycling round the world for four years on a budget of £7000, rowing the Atlantic Ocean with three strangers, breaking his foot on the world’s toughest ultra-marathon (but still finishing the race), walking across India, hauling a 350kg cart through the Empty Quarter desert, busking through Spain with no money or credit card, or even walking a lap of the M25 motorway round London!
Alastair’s journeys provide spectacular, original case studies of self-motivation, setting small targets to achieve outrageous goals, the rewards of risk and teamwork, overcoming doubt, and the tricky work-life balance.
