Next week Shannon The Dude will attempt to walk 50 miles in 20 hours. What began as a friendly and hypothetical radio discussion a few weeks ago, has grown into an actual challenge with real money (a lot of it) on the line. Shannon even picked up a sponsor, our friends at PowerStep, to help him in his 50-mile quest. Should he complete it, he will win $5,000.
But if he can’t complete it, a KSR listener will win money instead. We are currently in the process of building a pool of finalists to compete for the money if Shannon taps out of his walk early. Keep listening to the show and checking the site to find out how you can join the crowd of folks who stand a chance at Shannon’s prize money.
In the meantime, this is the official path the walking committee drew out for the walk. One loop is 25 miles, so he’ll have to do it twice before crossing the finish line at KSBar and Grille by 6 p.m. Friday night.
He will depart at 10 p.m. Thursday night from KSBar. (It’s marked on the map.)
