Phil McCarthy, with the help of his crew Dwight Dammers and Camilo Martinez, started his run from ocean to ocean on August 21, 2018, 5:03 a.m. (PDT) at San Francisco City Hall, and completed his run across the USA at New York City Hall on October 9 at 3:58 p.m. (EDT) in a total time of 49 days, 7 hours, 55 minutes. This is one of the fastest times ever across the USA on foot!

Phil aimed to break the world record for fastest run across the USA, by finishing in his home city of New York in less than 42 days, 6 1/2 hours. He had a professional crew of four getting him there, two support vehicles, all the gear, and lots of food to get him across the US. To do it right, he launched a fundraiser page to get some financial support, apart from his sponsors.
Although he didn’t break the record, it was an amazing achievement!
