How you can help me

There are so many ways you can help me achieve success:


Every tweet I get helps motivates me that little bit more. I will be on my own for so much of this trip and knowing that friends, family, colleagues and well wishers are all occasionally sparing a thought for me gives me that little bit more drive to go that extra km.

Each day I will need to buy enough food to fuel each step, find somewhere to sleep and make sure that all my equipment is in good enough condition to see me to the next day.


I am trying to fund as much of this expedition out of my own pocket but due to the sheer magnitude of the challenge and the length of time it will take to complete I am going to need to rely on the support and generosity of companies and individuals. Every pound donated to funding this expedition will be spent on getting to the finish line. Once I have covered the basic expedition costs all extra monies will be donated to charities.

Please click here or on the button above to contribute to the expedition fund (Please select personal payment)

Alternatively money can be deposited directly into the expedition bank account (Sort: 30-84-21 Account 11864860) or a cheque made payable to “Jamie Ramsay” sent to Project Americas, Dazema, 32400,  Bernede, France

Find me a bed:

Due to the sheer scale of this expedition it is unrealistic to plan somewhere to stay every night. If you know someone along my route who would be prepared to house and feed a shaggy, potentially smelly runner for the night, then please get in touch and help me have a good night sleep. Please email me on

Email me support:

Loneliness will be one of the toughest hurdles for me to overcome. When things get tough and doubt starts to creep in any support I get from you will help lift my spirits and motivate me to get back on the road and overcome each km as it comes. Please email me on
