Robbie Balenger is an ultra runner who completed a 3,200 mile run across the United States. On March 16, 2019, the run began. Starting in Los Angeles, then running east until he hit New York City, Robbie set out on the challenge of a lifetime.
Over the course of 75 days, students and community members along his transcontinental route were invited to engage in conversations about big goals and smart food choices.
Leading up to his transcontinental run, Robbie trained relentlessly. During the full transcon, he had to run one ultramarathon each day for 75 days. By running seven different ultramarathons, he prepared for his plant-powered traverse of the country.
