If you saw someone on the trail in June who looked like he was in the middle of a 3,000 mile run, it was probably Shan Riggs. On July 2nd, Shan became the first person to run the entire length of the East Coast Greenway, running 40 miles a day for 78 days. The Mount Vernon Trail is part of the East Coast Greenway and is roughly the halfway point. Shan’s run was part of a fundraising effort to support the East Coast Greenway Alliance which works towards the mission of making the ECG 100% off-road.
