In 2020 Shan ran 3,255 miles across the United States from San Francisco to the Connecticut coast, raising awareness and more than $45,000 for Foodshare, part of Feeding America. You can find out more about that adventure here.
On April 16th, 2022, Shan started to run more than 3,000 miles across America again, this time from Key West to the Canadian border along the East Coast Greenway, hoping to be the first person to run the entire trail.
The journey is unique in that Shan will be supported the entire route by his partner Joshuaine (Josh), who will be towing all of their supplies by bicycle.
This run/ride is to support the East Coast Greenway in its mission of connecting people to place.
The East Coast Greenway is a walking and biking route stretching 3,000 miles from Maine to Florida, connecting our nation’s most populated corridor. The East Coast Greenway is designed to transform the 15 states and 450 communities it connects through active and healthy lifestyles, sustainable transportation, community engagement, climate resilience, tourism, and more. The Greenway offers a safe place for bicyclists, walkers, runners, and more — of all ages and abilities — to commute, exercise, and visit new destinations.
