Tom Dennis- The man who ran around the world. Tom only graced Union with his presence for about 15 minutes or so but we should be proud that he chose our town to run through along his 16,000 mile journey.
It took 622 days to run the equivalent of 622 marathons (26,232 km). This was the fastest ever circumnavigation of the Earth on foot and Tom holds the Guiness Book record.
