On Saturday the 30th July, avid runner Stuart Repon-Ness will be taking on the challenge of a lifetime as he runs the west coast of the United States. His route will take him from Seattle, Washington all the way down Route 101 to San Diego, California in 45 days or less. Stuart will cover around 30 miles a day on his trip and is running completely unsupported.
