Mike Allsop. You might recognize the name. He’s the adventurer who in 2013 ran seven marathons on seven continents in seven days.
USANA accompanied Mike during the 777 Project and continues to keep up with the mountaineer, airline pilot, modern-day adventurer, and author.
In fact, Mike, who’s from New Zealand, will be in the United States in June to inspire others and sign copies of his book High Altitude, which chronicles his renewed “zest for life and thirst for adventure” following a near-fatal plane crash.

“Most people who survived an almost un-surviveable plane crash would be tempted to sit back, have a good hard look at life and take things a little bit easier. Commercial airline pilot, Mike Allsop is not most people. Almost losing his life in a Twin Otter crash off the coast of Hawaii awakened Mike’s zest for life and his thirst for adventure.
Mountaineering became Mike’s passion and climbing led to him almost getting shot in Russia, narrowly missing a fatal avalanche in Peru, returning a replica of a stolen Yeti hand to a Nepalese monastery and then attempting the biggest climb of them all — Everest.
Not content with being an exceptional climber, Mike decided to take up running. But he was never going to be a weekend jogger. He soon cooked up plans to run seven marathons, in seven continents, in seven days — the 777 Project — and also to run the world’s highest marathon on the slopes of Mt Everest.
He’s currently planning his next big adventure — a journey to the North Pole. Whatever happens, one thing’s for sure: he won’t be sitting on the couch wondering ‘What if?'” — www.highaltitudebook.com
