Have you ever thought… ‘I wonder how long it would take to walk across America?’
No? Well someone has. Jon Beeby had the idea and is now setting off on what can only be described as a journey of epic proportion, aiming to walk from the East to West coast.
Jon is aiming to raise £100,000 for TAG Rugby Trust on his 3000 mile walk from Long Beach NY to Santa Monica Pier in LA. That’s just over £33/mile for the maths fans among you.
Jon is aiming to do it in 75 days which means he’ll have to average about 40 miles every day. Fortunately he has done his training and has been packed off with a supply of Mint-Ease to soothe any aches and pains that hopefully won’t arise!
Having had messages of support from Jonny Wilkinson, Dara O’Briain and Sir Ranulph Fiennes (no less!) he’s looking forward to getting out and pounding the pavement. We wish him all the luck possible and hope it’s a safe trip.
