Erchana is a marathon runner who ran the equivalent to a marathon each day, going from the very tip of Australia to Melbourne (Tip to Toe). The idea was to raise about $10 for every one of the 6,300 kilometres she ran for the Wilderness Society (blog post); she ended up raising over $100,000. Erchana ran the equivalent of 150 marathons, breaking the Guinness World Records. Extinction is forever, and we need to support the environment that sustains humanity.
The average human requires about 2000 calories a day. Erchana has needed to consume around 6,000 calories a day and said that she sampled every flavour of ice cream available along the way. She was chased by a wild bull and attacked by mosquitoes. She ran on dirt roads, beaches, across mountains, before finishing it all at Melbourne’s The Tan walking/running track at the Pillars of Wisdom. She was met by Australia’s leading media outlets and very grateful members of the Wilderness Society. See the ABC story here.
