Running from Scotland to the Sahara

Dr Andrew Murray ran 2659 miles in 78 days from John O’Groats to the Sahara Desert.
Andrew averaged a staggering 34 miles a day, for 78 consecutive days (that’s over 100 marathons!).
Here he explains his adventure using just 20 slides which each scrolled on automatically after 20 seconds: a 400 second adventure.

    How on earth do you train for something like this? One of my dreams is to be an ulrta marathoner and run great distances like this but gosh where do you even start? What do you do money and gear wise? How do you cross all of the countries? Just have them stamp your passport as you run by? Same with vagabonding, going from country to country. Just walk in, stamp and keep going? Im obviously new to this and REALLY want to start but i dont know where to even take the first step.
