Phil's Run Across the USA

I'm getting ready to break the world record for fastest run across the USA, and I need your help to do it! I'll be starting in San Francisco on Aug. 21 and finishing in my home city of New York in less than 42 days, 6 1/2 hours to break the record. I'll have a professional crew of four getting me there, two support vehicles, all the gear, and lots of food to get me across the US. To do it right, it will take a good amount of money.

I'm a very experienced and accomplished ultrarunner, I'm made for this. I've won two 24-hour national championships, run on the American team for the 24-hour world championships five times (with a 4th place finish at worlds in 2007), held the American record for 48 hours with over 257 miles, finished the famed Spartathlon race in Greece twice, including top American in 2017, finished in the top 10 at the notoriously tough Badwater Ultra three times.

Please help me take on this epic adventure, and follow me as I go coast-to-coast on foot!28677044_15221271500_r.jpeg
