Join Me March 26, 2024 on the Halifax Waterfront
Food, water, shelter and a means to travel.
Support/Sponsors will go towards preparations, conditioning and gathering the items required for a cross Canada run.
The more support the better the ease of travel.
Adaptive Star AXIOM PHOENIX 3 Indoor/Outdoor
Mobility Stroller - $3450
Ford Transit Crew Van or a like vehicle
At $182/week lease, I would require a sponsor to loan a vehicle for the duration or $7500 min.
Cost of gas would be a multiple of approximately 0.157 x cost/L
Currently $2119.5 for the potential 9000km
or An used van plus maintenance cost.
MEC Talon Windstopper -30C Down Expedition Sleeping Bag
$2700/ 9 months
2-Person Tent 2.0
Icebreaker Merino Wool
$1000 to be outfitted
996 Vioz Men’s Gore-Tex Hiking Boots - Wide
4 pairs $1656
Trail Glove 5
Trail Running Shoes
10 pairs $1725
J.B. Field's Super-Wool Hiker GX Socks - 10 pairs $150
These are just the tools for increasing a successful outcome in a +8300 kilometer run across Canada.
Great athletic preparations must also be considered and included.
What is produced in value far exceeds the cost.
- The highest paid athlete in the world earns a total of $55million(CAD) or $41million(USD)/year
- this revenue could pay for my journey within
4 hours of what would be earned in a year.
Cost of watching a 2 hour game could cost you +$100.
Cost in months watching the effort and stories of an incredible journey across Canada
With approximately 440 000 people living in Halifax, Nova Scotia; to produce the above required products, it would cost about $0.05
from every Haligonian.
Given an approximated $25 000 budget;
I could accomplish and survive a run from Halifax, across Newfoundland and the rest of the Canadian Provinces.
For further perspective, this is less than a
full-time minimum wage employee would earn.
