Recently we have been talking a lot about adventuring here at the Path Projects office. Ultra endurance athlete and great friend Charlie Engle takes adventuring to another level with 5.8 Project: 

He is aiming to be the first athlete to trek from the lowest point to the highest summit on every continent.

While it’s over 4,500 miles from the lowest place on our planet, the shore of the Dead Sea, to its highest peak on Mount Everest, these iconic ends of the earth are separated by a mere 5.8 vertical miles.

First up is Africa, Charlie began the 5.8 Global Adventure Series on August 28. He started with a free dive to the lowest place he could reach at Lake Assaiin Djibouti on the remote coast of East Africa. From here he started running, biking and navigating his way through forests, deserts, elephant herds, impalas and people.

He is moving through Ethiopia, Kenya and Tanzania, reaching the base of Kilimanjaro, where he will climb to the top of Africa.
