Moon Jogger to Run from New York to Los Angeles in 46 Days Ultramarathoner Aims to Break Thirty-four Year World Record. New Zealander Perry Newburn, an ultramarathon runner and Moon Jogger, officially announced today his attempt at the World Record record for running from New York to Los Angeles in the shortest time, a distance of approximately 3,100 miles. Newburn plans to begin his run at the New York City Hall on September 1, 2014.
We are organizing a virtual 5K called 5K ACROSS THE USA, to help raise funds for Perry's journey and help cover the costs of lodging, travel, food, fuel, etc. Run a virtual 5K while Perry is out running, and you even get a really cool medal. Find out more HERE.
Has anyone else out there attempted to run or walk across America? If you have any tips to share let me know!
Newburn will celebrate his 60th birthday during his record run.
