#29 - Running Across America with Shan Riggs

August 23, 2020

My guest today is ultra runner Shan Riggs. Shan's running resume includes close to 50 ultra marathons including the Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run which is the oldest 100 miler in the country. Shan is about to embark on a run across the United States for Foodshare which is Greater Hartford Connecticut's regional food bank. The people at Foodshare connected Shan and I because that was the non profit that I ran from Canada to Connecticut to support. In less than a week, Shan will be running from San Francisco, CA all the way back to Connecticut to raise money for Foodshare in these difficult times that the world is currently experiencing. He is trying to finish the run in three to four months and raise a lot of awareness for food insecurity along the journey. If you'd like to find out more about the run or support Shan please visit
