This incredible journey that started with my feet in the Atlantic Ocean will finally end when I reach Ocean Beach in San Francisco on Sunday, November 27 at or around 12 pm (noon)! Totaling over 4,400 miles, I ran through forests, over mountains and through the desert of Nevada and Utah.
I will start my final run at 11 am by running across the Golden Gate Bridge via the East pedestrian walkway and exiting at the Golden Gate Welcome Center. We are anticipating additional volunteers to be at the Golden Gate Welcome Center looking to join me for final my run to Ocean Beach.
Those who would like to cheer and/or join me for my final run can do so by meeting at the Golden Gate Welcome Center. It is HIGHLY ADVISED not to drive to the welcome center, parking is limited and expect big delays approaching and exiting the parking lot.

NOTE: We strongly recommend using the other means of visiting the Bridge as described on this page. Parking is extremely limited at both the southeast and northeast visitor areas of the Bridge, and ongoing construction projects in the area may temporarily close roads leading to the Bridge.

"I did my best, it wasn't much
I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch
I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool ya
And even though it all went wrong
I'll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah"
