20,000 miles and 5 years later, 61 year old Rosie Swale-Pope returned to Britain on June 17th. Her trip started out in October 2003 to raise money for Cancer charaties. Her round-the-world run has taken her through England, Holland, Germany, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Russia, the U.S., Canada, Greenland, Iceland, the Faroe Islands and now to Scotland.
She had many near death experiences along the journey and ran through really extreme conditions. She is now in Scotland and she hopes to arrive at her home in Wales in August. This lady is just amazing as she had run ins with polar bears, grizzly bears, and wolves. She also came down with pneumonia, got hit by a bus, and she was washed downstream.
