One Week Til Adventureman Arrives!

We have some of the details of Adventureman Jamie McDonald’s arrival here in Gloucester firmed up as he finishes his AMAZING Super US Run right here next week Wednesday March 27. We hope you can join us.

Adventureman has been running around the perimeter of the United States raising money for the care and treatment of sick children. For more information or to donate, click here. He decided to end his run here in Gloucester Massachusetts, in part because his hometown is Gloucester England. We are proud to welcome him to town.

He is scheduled to arrive Wednesday March 27 finishing this epic run around 4:30 PM at the Fisherman’s Memorial Statue on the boulevard. All are welcome to join us at the statue or along his route coming on 127 near Manchester to Hesperus through Stage Fort Park and up the boulevard. We are seeking runners and spectators to encourage him throughout.

Runners are welcome to join him for the final 6 miles, though that meeting spot and time has yet to be determined (likely in or near Manchester By the Sea). Runners can also chose to meet him at the Hammond Castle parking lot for the 2.25 mile run to the Man at the Wheel (time also TBA). OR runners (and especially children) are encouraged to meet up at Stage Fort Park (probably by 4 PM or so) for the very last .7 miles of his Super US Run. Wouldn’t  you like to be part of this?

Mayor Sefatia Romeo Theken has been instrumental in communicating and arranging plans with Adventureman’s team. There will be a brief ceremony at the statue, then Jamie wishes to put the final touch to the end of his journey by touching the Atlantic Ocean on Pavilion Beach. Then off to the Beauport Hotel for a reception.

Jamie has expressed worries that “no one will be there” in Gloucester to welcome him. Let’s get out there and cheer him on Wednesday March 27 4:30 (ish) at the Fisherman’s Memorial. Hoping to see you there! Say hello and cheers if you see him around town:

  1. A great piece Pat , really enjoyed reading the final details, looks like it’ll be a late night for us in UK. Thank you for your support.


  2. I do wish I could be there. Can’t make that flight happen. Can someone plan to go live for the last mile so we can all see it. I ran with Jamie in Florida, and been following his journey and encouraging him along the way. He is my hero!


      1. I’m pretty sure Jamie will live stream on FB so check out Adventureman on FB for anyone wanting to follow


  3. Jamie, AKA: Amazing Adventure Man, stay with us for a couple of days, in Arizona. We all enjoyed him, so very much. He has become an important part of our lives. Once you meet him, it’s a memory you will cherish, the rest of your life! We will not be joining, at the very end. It has finally warmed up again. Time for working at the farm, before those terrible hot temperatures hit us, again. Small window, of opportunity. 😎 Thank you, for all you are doing, to welcome Jamie, to the end, of this run across the USA! I am sure there will be many, there to greet him!😁


  4. We are coming from NJ to see Jamie finish! We are very excited! We hosted him for 3 nights when he ran thru Philly/NJ! It’s great the town is putting together a celebration!


  5. thank you to everyone that helped Jamie along the way there are way too many to mention but you all know who you are, I had the pleasure of his company for over a month before we dropped him at the train station to start his journey in the USA, absolutely memorable and will never forget the time we shared. If it’s anything like the finish line in Vancouver was in 2014 it’s going to be so much fun for those there.
