I am Anders Forselius, one of the club founders and the ambassador for Northern Europe. I am a Swedish freelance writer for Runner's World Sweden and also a tour guide for the Swedish running/traveling company Springtime Travel. I therefore meet a lot of runners from Scandinavia, athletes who I try to convince to become a Globetrotter. The Scandinavians love to travel so I think we will have many more Globetrotters from Northern Europe in the future.

I ran my first overseas marathon in Vancouver, Canada, almost twenty years ago and since then I have been running marathons in 54 countries including 33 countries in one year.

I have run marathons in all fifty American states and this is also where I have my favorite races: Chicago, New York, Boston and Philadelphia.

My favorite marathons outside the U.S are in Prague, Tokyo, Dublin, Barcelona and Luxembourg. 

I do love to ride my bicycle between my marathons and that exercise is also a great way to recover from the races and explore our beautiful world.
