During the summer of 2006 Montana resident Paul Staso ran across America solo - from the Oregon Coast to the Delaware Coast - to keep a promise to some elementary children in his hometown of Missoula. He ran 3,260 miles across 15 states during the second hottest summer recorded in the United States. He averaged 30 miles per day while pushing a jogging stroller of gear weighing 80 pounds. His entire journey has been documented at http://www.pacetrek.com/usa.
In 2008 Paul Staso ran 620 miles solo across Montana in a worldwide youth fitness promotion effort that involved 8,000 children from 8 countries. Those kids virtually raced Paul in teams at their schools, logging a cummulative distance of 42,000 miles in 3 weeks! About half of the teams beat Paul across Montana, and Paul averaged 31 miles per day on the east-to-west trek. In the final week alone, Paul logged 247 miles while conquering the mountainous terrain of western Montana - including the Continental Divide.
