A Rude Awakening: Running Across Death Valley

EC CommunityJames Hipkiss

Expedition: A Rude Awakening On March 24, 2012 I will be running 184 miles across the longest length of Death Valley National Park over a period of 8 days. The planned route involves us starting at the northern most tip of the park IVO Last Chance Mountains and ending at the southern most tip of the park. The objective of this journey is to inspire individuals to begin living more active healthy lifestyles through reconnecting with the outdoors.

This will be achieved through my support crew who will be responsible for capturing this all on video, as well as ensuring I complete the distance safely and smoothly. Currently our project is posted on www.kickstarter.com, (search for, A Rude Awakening) where we are trying to raise the funds to make this project possible. Please take a look at the website posted below and if this seems of interest to you, it would mean a lot if you donated to this cause. Rewards are given as well!
