About the JimGump Project

‘An extraordinary man and a brilliant story-teller’

One man and his dog. Endless days of amazing outdoors-active adventures, combined with inspirational school visits and school challenges along the way. No day off. Ever. Inspiring a generation.

The JimGump project is a unique physical and educational challenge adventure combining daily physical outdoor activity with visits to schools and other groups/clubs to inspire children around the world to be more active.

‘JimGump’ is Jim Plunkett-Cole. Jim never takes a day’s rest.  He has almost completed one lap of the equator distance of 25,000 miles without missing a single day of running a minimum of 10K (6.21 miles).

The next chapter in the JimGump project is “Jim and Flow’s Amazing Equator Adventure”.  An interactive physical and educational challenge for primary school children.

Starting from the Royal Observatory in Greenwich in 2020, Jim and his dog – Flow – will attempt to run the equator distance in their lifetimes together as companions.

951 cities and 195 countries lying across the 360 longitudinal meridians around the world and 25, 000 miles of adventure.  Exploring each city and country virtually as they go.  Exploring the culture, people and wildlife virtually as they go.

Encouraging children into a lifetime of daily activity by joining in with their own equator adventure, virtually circumnavigating the globe themselves as they go.

A unique, inclusive adventure the like of which the world has never seen before.
