Ultrarunner and Adventurer, Richard Kresser, spends a few minutes with The Nation to talk about the completion of his supported (although mostly self-supported) self-created and human-powered tour of 16 volcano summits in the Northwest U.S. This Tour de Volcanoes is something Richard has been scheming and planning for years and 2018 became a reality.
Richard is always on the move and happened to be on the move during this podcast so we experienced some audio challenges.
Tour de Volcanoes by the numbers:
16 out of 16 active Volcano summits
2,400 miles of biking with 127,000 feet of elevation gain
On foot, 180 miles of climbing with 79,700 feet of gain
From starting Mount Lassen at the trailhead, to finishing Mount Baker at the trailhead, 25 days, 9 hours, and 58 minutes.
Listen to the past podcast with Richard about his Broken Arrow 135m race in -25 degree (F) temperatures
