Sean Conway is an adventurer and extreme endurance athlete. In 2015, Sean became the first and only person in history to complete the Great British Triathlon: cycling, swimming and then running the length of Britain from Land’s End to John O’Groats. (The swim was considered impossible and had never been attempted.) With an adventure documentary by Discovery and considerable media interest, Sean and his trademark beard had arrived.
In 2016, Sean took on an even bigger challenge: a self-supported continuous Ultra Triathlon around the coast of Britain. Sean cycled 3,350 miles, ran 800 miles and swam from Brighton to Lulworth Cove to complete the coastal route. Discovery Channel followed Sean’s incredible challenge to produce a three-part TV series: On the Edge. This challenge was the world’s longest ultra triathlon.
In 2018, Sean became the fastest person ever to cycle the 4000 miles across Europe from Portugal to Russia, solo and unsupported.
