Mark Llehellin
Born (5 days before Christian Bale) on 25th January 1974 in Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, Wales. Mark joined the British army at the age of 16 and served with Junior Leaders Regiment, Royal Artillery. Mark initially failed his one and a half mile run basic fitness test and was voted the fattest person in his troop. 

After building his fitness up over a year and a half and after failing twice (once through lack of fitness & once through injury) Mark successfully passed the British All Arms Commando Course and earned the right to wear the coveted Green Beret. 

The USA Run of Hope
is a run across the United States that British runner Mark Llewhellin has set up. It goes through 48 of the mainland American States and the route has been uniquely designed in the shape of the U.S flag, as pictured below. The distance of the run is roughly 21,000 miles and the run will take place over several years. Even though Mark is doing all of the run, the event is designed 'for the people' People from all different backgrounds are invited to join Mark in this epic journey. While Mark goes from State to State you can join in be it just for fitness or to raise money for a worthwhile charity or cause that you believe in.
