George Bullard

Description

George Bullard is a world record breaking explorer, endurance athlete and speaker. He
believes that through the outdoors we can change lives. His mission is to reconnect humans
with nature.
Described by the world’s greatest living explorer, Ran Feinnes as “genuinely
groundbreaking” and by Bear Grylls as “total respect”, George has claimed many accolades.
To date, he has covered almost 2,000 miles on foot in the polar regions, spending more than
26,000 hours in isolation. If you believe Gladwell’s 10,000 hour rule, that makes him a
master of remote, hostile environments.
At 14 years old, George was part of a team that swam the English Channel. Before turning
17, he’d swum the length of Lake Zurich, circumnavigated Barbados and New York’s
Manhattan Island. During this time George was also ranked #1 in the UK for Tetrathlon.
At the age of 19 George completed the world’s longest fully unsupported polar journey, 1374
miles on foot. Since then, George’s expeditions have included the archipelago of South
Georgia, cycling across Europe, climbing as yet unnamed summits, driving North-West
Africa and sailing the Southern, Atlantic and Pacific oceans. George has guided over 350
people of all ages in the Amazon rainforest, the Indian subcontinent, Greenland Icecap and
Svalbard.
September 2016 saw George complete a second world first; 66 days in a kayak crossing the
ferocious North Atlantic Ocean from Greenland to Scotland. The purpose? To test the theory
that Inuits may have made the same journey in AD1700.
In 2021 George ran 630 miles along the South West Coast Path. A challenge designed to
raise money for charity and encourage people outside post global pandemic. The route
required him climb 35,000m of ascent, 4 times the height of Everest, over rocky coastal
terrain.
In 2022, George crossed his 5th ocean. This has given him a unique insight into the planets
oceans, winds and most importantly, pollution.
Not everyone needs to tackle the worlds most hostile environments for an adventure.
Everyone has their own Everest. George hopes to encourage people to understand that
adventures will give them something that nobody else can.
To action this, George regularly gives talks at schools and youth groups, is a life coach for
young people and offers unique outdoor education courses to people from all over the world.
