Ray Zahab
Long-distance runner, Youth Advocate and Best-Selling Author
Keynote Lecture: Challenge. Distance. Discovery

On November 1, 2006, the former "pack a day smoker" turned ultra runner, set out on an expedition to cross the Sahara Desert by foot. 111 days and 7,500 kms after leaving the coast of Senegal, Africa they completed their journey by stepping into the Red Sea.  This epic expedition involved running an average of 70kms a day without a single day of rest. National Geographic tracked the expedition, as well as the documentary film Running the Sahara, produced by Matt Damon and directed by Academy Award winner James Moll, was created in an effort to raise awareness for the drinking water crisis in North Africa. Ray has leveraged his future adventures to help raise awareness and funding for causes, like this one, that he supports and believes in.

In 2008, Ray founded impossible2Possible (i2P) (impossible2possible.com) an organization that aims to inspire and educate youth through adventure learning, inclusion and participation in expeditions. Youth Ambassadors are selected from around the globe then participate in all areas, from logistics and running, to creating educational content and team support. Since its inception, i2P has included 12 youth expeditions around the world which are 100% free of cost.

In 2009, Ray broke the world speed record for an unsupported expedition by a team to the South Pole. In the process, he trekked from Hercules Inlet to the South Pole, a distance of 1,100 kms, solely on foot and snowshoes, without the use of skis. Starting on June 23, 2013, Ray ran over 2,000km across Mongolia and the Gobi Desert. He was accompanied by both a film crew and photographer that created a robust film archive sharing the stories of the people and culture of Mongolia.

Ray is the author of two best-selling books: Running for My Life and Running to Extremes.  Ray speaks around the world at events such as TED, IOC World Conference, Idea City, The Economist World, World Affairs Council, and numerous Apple Distinguished Educator events internationally.  He has been interviewed and appeared on several talk and news programs including CNNi, The Hour, CBC, CTV, BBC, Jay Leno, and Discovery.  In 2015 Canadian Geographic recognized Ray as one of Canada's Top Explorers and he received the Meritorious Service Cross of Canada.
