Charlie Engle

Ultramarathon Runner Author, Running Man

Charlie Engle is one of the premier ultra-endurance adventure athletes in the world today. He’s run across more than 40 countries but counts his most important accomplishment as his 28 years living clean and sober. Charlie’s record-setting 4,500 run across the Sahara Desert, documented in the film RUNNING THE SAHARA, led to the creation of H2O Africa, which is known today as Water.org, co-founded by Matt Damon.


Charlie has been a featured speaker at the United Nations, at NATO Headquarters in Belgium and onboard the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier. He regularly trains Fortune 500 companies in strategies for resilience and addressing addiction issues. His best-selling memoir RUNNING MAN was published by Simon and Schuster in 2016.
