CURRENT: SUCCESS!! I just RaN ACROSS AUSTRALIA!
Run STATS: July 13, 2019 - November 8, 2019, 2,210 miles, 119 days, 28-30 miles a day most days.
Intro to the project: Hi y'all! I'm Katie Visco! Ten years after my run across America, I am running across Australia July 13, 2019 through November 2019. The route begins on the northern coast in Darwin and heads south to Adelaide, through the Tanami, Central, and Simpson deserts. Instead of the ease of using vehicle support, my husband Henley Phillips is supporting me on bicycle, peddling about 400 pounds of gear, food, and water at a time. The 2,210-mile run will be the only known bicycle-supported transcontinental run across Australia. My purpose is to show a message to myself and others - let courage win, curiosity is extremely powerful and can be trusted, and to not, for one second, let fear undermine your dreams.
