How long would it take to run across Canada?
Well let’s see.
It is 7200 km by road (Victoria to St John’s according to Google maps).
I run at say 10 km/hr. That would be 720 hours = 30 days straight non stop. “Only” running 8 hours per day would make it 90 days. That would be 8 hours plus breaks, plus slow hills, so maybe 10 hours between breakfast and when I approach a place to have dinner.
There are at least 2 ferries, so you could relax during those few hours and still cover considerable distance.
I don’t know if 8 hours is doable. Maybe a 4 – 5 hour marathon each day so you can appreciate some of where you are. That would make it a 200 day (7 months) journey. That is 7 days per week. With a 7 month journey it would be pretty tough to skip all of winter. And you would be in very flat Saskatchewan and Manitoba for a very long time.
Yikes this is sounding like crazy talk. I know I have heard of people doing this, but man that is some journey.
If I only wanted to do a 10k every day it would take 2 years. But I would get to visit every little town and every Tim Horton’s on the way.
You would have to give up a lot of family to make that happen. And I am sure you would come back a changed person.
But wait. Doesn’t Canada have 3 coasts?
What would it take to do coast to coast to coast?

I am going to bed. This topic is too tiring to contemplate further.
