How did he manage to spend almost half a year in the USA in 2015? Who paid this?
One of the charities he is running for, was the organizer of his last TransCon.
There is no reason not to focus on the financial aspect.
I am also wondering how he could claim he ran one marathon a day, because some stages of the TransCon were less than 26 miles: http://raceacrossusa.org/results/
One of the news articles said something about RY's financial struggles. Rent. Support of family. Don't remember details. But that is very telling when he has made numerous trips to the US in the past couple years and has lived here for months and months doing his race stuff. Flights to/from London in April 2015. From/to London for this transcon. The Rv. Hotels. Food. Tech equipment. Someone could check his race schedule and results and see how many flights across the pond he's been making. Those aren't cheap. Follow the money.
He claims 96 marathon victories. Many of those came in the transcon stage race. It'd be interesting to add them up and see how much of the 96 is an exaggeration too.
