Nick Butter

In brief, I'm a runner, writer and a speaker. I've travelled the world for various running competitions, exploring mountains, racing in international ultra endurance events, and I'm best known for being the first and only person to have run a marathon in every country in the world.. This sight is to showcase my other hobby, photography! I usually end up with a camera in my hand wherever I go.

If you haven't already checked out my official website, take a look. holds all the info about my professional life, various expeditions, and of course details about my Running The World 196 expedition.


On January 6th 2018 I embarked on a 2 year mission to set the world record to become the first person to run a marathon in every country in the world. In this time my camera came with me, we shot a documentary, and I'm currently writing a book about the experience. It's available to Pre Order on Amazon too.

This site is a collection of the photography not only from the Running The World 196 expedition but from various trips around the world.

I am in the process of updating content. I took over 400,000 photos on the 674 day record, and so it takes a while to whittle them down and make the site look pretty.

If you'd like to purchase a print of any of the photos please email me directly Thank you

I hope you enjoy browsing.
