"Going through Montana has brought record heat, thunder and hail storms. It's been the adventure of a lifetime," said runner Greg Nance. "I want to enable positive community, staying healthy and not being alone for youth."

HELMVILLE – While running across America, Greg Nance passed Helmville on Highway141 June 27 and spent the night in Seeley Lake. During an impromptu interview near the Highway 141 and Highway 200 junction, Nance shared his life passions and motivation for the adventure.

Beginning in Long Island, New York City April 25, Nance aims to finish July 17 at Ocean Shores, Washington. The journey is planned to take 85 days, running an average of 38 miles a day. 

"Being naturally hard-headed and liking to do big, crazy stuff, running across the country was a dream I got at age 18," said Nance.
