Run Across America – Croix Sather
After many years as a carpenter, Croix felt ordinary and unfulfilled. He decided to transform his life and become someone truly remarkable.
His life changed when he asked himself this question, “What would I do if I knew I would Succeed? If failure was impossible, what would I do?”
They said it wasn’t possible.
In just one year Croix went from a non-runner to a 2,621 mile run across America, joining the ranks of the most elite ultra-runners in the world.
For 100 consecutive days, he ran a marathon distance each day. And each morning, before his daily 26 up to 34 miles, he gave an inspirational 90-minute keynote speech to at-risk groups, like addiction recovery centers, homeless shelters, and Hope for the Warriors. Croix donated approximately 10,000 of his Dream Big Act Big books to his audiences.
During this foot trip from San Diego to New York Croix covered a total of 2,621 miles.
He is the only person in the world who ran 100 marathons and gave 100 keynote speeches in the same 100 consecutive days.
His finish was dramatic as he ran through New York City proudly running with a big American flag through Times Square, past the Freedom Tower and finishing at the Vietnam War Memorial near Battery Park. He ran his last three miles with hundreds of runners in support of “Run For The Warriors” 5K race. With the last 100 meters with his children in his arms.
