HERE IS THE INFO WITH TIMES TO RUN!! JOIN IN AS ADVENTUREMAN FINISHES HIS 5,500 MILE US RUN IN GLOUCESTER- PLEASE SHARE!!!!
On Wednesday the 27th March, after a year running exactly 210 marathons – more than 5,500 miles, from the westernmost point to the east coast via as many children’s hospitals as he could visit during his yearlong visa – Jamie McDonald, AKA Adventureman, will run his final six miles to the beach at Fort Point, Gloucester, Massachusetts.
And he’d love all the support he can get!
The mammoth adventure has raised more than $150,000 for sick kids so far – a cause close to Jamie’s heart, having spent the first nine years of his life in and out of hospital, with a rare spinal condition.
We’re inviting members of the public, of all ages, to join and support us. (Superhero outfits are optional but very much preferred!).
We have broken it down into a few stages to ensure people of all abilities can join in, and Jamie will be live-streaming to ensure people all over the world can be involved, too!!!
The route can be seen on Google Maps here: https://goo.gl/maps/Snm3sbYvgh52
