Trans North America Run
Richard Donovan will attempt to run across the USA from San Francisco to New York, beginning on 19th May 2015.
The 3,100+ mile route will be one of the most difficult but scenic ways of crossing the North American continent, encompassing major challenges such as Nevada's Highway 50, known as the loneliest road in America, the scorching deserts of Utah and the dizzying heights of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. He will encounter temperatures of 100+ Degrees Fahrenheit and altitude of up to 12,000 ft on his journey from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean.
The Trans North America will raise much needed funds for Alvin Matthews, a runner from California who was paralysed in an accident in 2014. It will also be ideal preparation for an attempt by Richard to run across Antarctica at a future date.
The Run is scheduled to finish on 6th September 2015.
