Jamie McDonald embarks on his greatest adventure yet: running 5,500
miles (the equivalent of 210 marathons), solo and unsupported, coast to
coast across America. An impressive feat for anyone, let alone someone who
was told as a poorly child that they might never walk again.
Jamie McDonald is a world-record-holding adventurer, author,
motivational speaker and founder of Superhero Foundation. He was the
first person in history to run the 5,000 miles from the Atlantic to the Pacific
coast without the aid of a support crew, raising more than £250,000 for
sick children in Canada and the UK. He was voted one of The Independent’s
top 100 happiest people in the UK.
