Headsweats-sponsored athlete, David Wronski, will attempt a 150 mile non-stop run along the coastal trail of California on Dec. 16th.
David Wronski runs to test the human limits of endurance, and plans to be on a lifelong journey to see what those limits are. Running in a barefoot style (wearing Vibram FiveFingers) his last big adventure was the Brazil 135 Ultramarathon which was and will be his last organized ultramarathon race. After completing this distance in grueling mountain conditions, David knew his mission to search for a personal distance limit would have to take precedent over races. 135 miles is traditionally the longest non-stop race offered in the world on mountain trails (not including stage-races, or road races).
Upon completing the Brazil 135, which is a portion of Caminho Da Fe (Path of Faith) in the Serra Da Mantiqueira Mountains, David became the first person to ever complete a 135 mile race wearing only Vibrams. He is also the youngest finisher ever of the Brazil 135 and the life-changing experience has lead to more adventures.
On December 16th, 2011, David and a team of friends will begin a 150 mile adventure, running on the California Coastal Trail starting from Mendocino county, and ending in Sausalito, 150 miles later. When he completes this, he will move to the Tahoe Rim Trail 168 attempt in July of 2012. After a successful completion of that run, David plans to make a massive effort to break the record of the 211 mile John Muir Trail, by running non-stop. David does not sleep at all on any of his attempts. He only attempt single stage runs, and will be awake for 45-55 hours for the Coastal Trail attempt.
Good luck, David!
