About The USA 2020 Challenge
Our challenge will officially start on Friday 13th March 2020 in Augusta, Maine and finish on Wednesday 24th June 2020 in Honolulu, Hawaii
During the 104 days of the challenge, myself and a support team of six people will navigate our way through all 50 US states, experience many different types of weather and cross many types of terrain, all to complete something most think is humanly impossible
Running a total of 1,310 miles, that’s 50 marathons, one in each state capital starting and ending at the capitals city hall building. Then after each one, getting on a bike and cycling to the next state capital, covering approximately 17,000 cycling miles in total. Climbing the equivalent of up and down Mount Everest 9.2 times and burning on average 12,500 calories a day.
Weaving our way up, down and across the USA covering a total of 18,310 miles in 104 days
All to raise £1 million to support both The 401 Foundation and The Youth Sport Trust in their work to show the positive effects physical activity has on people’s confidence, self-esteem, and overall mental health
