At the age of nine, Jamie's family feared he would never walk again. Twenty years later, he set off to run 5,000 miles coast to coast across Canada. When Jamie decides to repay the hospitals that saved his life as a child, he embarks on the biggest challenge of his life: running the equivalent of 200 marathons back-to-back, solo and unsupported, in –40 degree weather, surviving all kinds of injuries and traumas on the road, and wearing through 13 pairs of trainers. And he does it all dressed as the superhero, the Flash. Though his journey was both mentally and physically exhausting, it was the astounding acts of kindness and hospitality he encountered along the way that kept him going. Jamie soon came to realize that every person who helped him towards his goal was a superhero, too.

Jamie McDonald is a world-record-holding adventurer, author, motivational speaker, and founder of Superhero Foundation. He was the first person in history to run the 5,000 miles from the Atlantic to the Pacific coast without the aid of a support crew, raising more than £250,000 for sick children in Canada and the UK.
