A man with a penchant for ultra endurance is coming to The Victoria Theatre in Halifax on Thursday, October 11.

Mark Beaumont shot to fame in 2008 when he smashed the world record for the fastest circumnavigation by bicycle, covering 18,296 miles in 194 days and 17 hours.

In 2009, he set out on his second ultra-endurance solo challenge - to cycle the length of the American Cordillera. On this 13,000 mile expedition, Mark not only cycled the longest mountain range on the planet but also climbed the highest peaks in North and South America.

Earlier this year, Mark narrowly survived after capsizing mid-Atlantic whilst attempting a world record crossing.

In An Evening with Mark Beaumont, he offers the audience a chance to share his four epic expeditions, including hostile encounters on the borderlands of Helmand Province, isolation while crossing the great deserts, close encounters with polar bears and diving into the flooded cabins to save the lives of his team.

The night starts at 7.30pm and tickets are £15.
