When Andrew Skurka reaches Cape Alava, Washington in August, he will have completed an impressive journey. He will
become the first person to walk the 7,700-mile transcontinental
Sea-to-Sea Route (C2C), a major achievement.
He’s been averaging about 36 miles per day, since he started on August 6, 2004 at Cape Gaspe, Quebec. He has since
traversed a network of hard-core long-distance trails that almost continuously span the continent between the Atlantic
and Pacific oceans. The only breaks are a 700-mile gap in North Dakota and Montana along the Missouri River and a
30-mile gap in Vermont.
