Winona, Minnesota to Host Trans-American Runners’ Story

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to run across the unforgiving roads that lie between the eastern and western coasts of the United States? Many have – and yet few people have ever attempted, let alone completed, the roughly 3,000 mile adventure.

Whether you run for sport (competition) or pleasure, the idea of running 100 miles at a time, let alone thousands of miles is an intense challenge of the mind & body. In 2008, world class runners Marshall Ulrich and Charlie Engle embarked on a trans-continental journey from San Francisco to New York City. Along the way, a video crew captured footage of the people they met and the rugged conditions they faced along the way.

Next Tuesday, September 7, 2010, Marshall Ulrich, will be presenting his 2008 Running America film at the Winona County History Center in Winona, Minnesota. Running America captures one of the most defining and difficult times in modern American history as the backdrop for an amazing and unpredictable expedition. If you’re interested in meeting Marshall and hearing about his journey, here are the details.
