RE: Robert Young fakes run across America

I have been in touch with Rob's wife Joanna concerning the video of the RV. She claims it's possible Rob wasn't running and was inside the RV, because he was extremely tired and they were heading to a place to eat or rest. But they always return to the place where he stopped running.

Regardless, Rob is doing something extraordinary as a survivor of child abuse and deserves a place in the Guinness Book of Records. It's disgusting how some yankees are questioning him.


This truly isn't a US v UK thing (apart from the odd bit of banter). I'm a Brit and have the same questions in my mind as others - he obviously does a lot of long distance run/walk/shuffling or whatever but seems to have padded out his story a lot and its fair to point out that that raises genuine questions about his current venture. Don't care what country he's from.

I'm particularly intrigued by all this talk of 5mm starting pace based on his visible genuine prs - but I get that a lot of people jog parkruns so they may be misleading. I would love to see him properly race a 5k when rested.
