We have some of the details of Adventureman Jamie McDonald’s arrival here in Gloucester firmed up as he finishes his AMAZING Super US Run right here next week Wednesday March 27. We hope you can join us.
Adventureman has been running around the perimeter of the United States raising money for the care and treatment of sick children. For more information or to donate, click here. He decided to end his run here in Gloucester Massachusetts, in part because his hometown is Gloucester England. We are proud to welcome him to town.
He is scheduled to arrive Wednesday March 27 finishing this epic run around 4:30 PM at the Fisherman’s Memorial Statue on the boulevard. All are welcome to join us at the statue or along his route coming on 127 near Manchester to Hesperus through Stage Fort Park and up the boulevard. We are seeking runners and spectators to encourage him throughout.
Runners are welcome to join him for the final 6 miles, though that meeting spot and time has yet to be determined (likely in or near Manchester By the Sea). Runners can also chose to meet him at the Hammond Castle parking lot for the 2.25 mile run to the Man at the Wheel (time also TBA). OR runners (and especially children) are encouraged to meet up at Stage Fort Park (probably by 4 PM or so) for the very last .7 miles of his Super US Run. Wouldn’t you like to be part of this?
Mayor Sefatia Romeo Theken has been instrumental in communicating and arranging plans with Adventureman’s team. There will be a brief ceremony at the statue, then Jamie wishes to put the final touch to the end of his journey by touching the Atlantic Ocean on Pavilion Beach. Then off to the Beauport Hotel for a reception.
Jamie has expressed worries that “no one will be there” in Gloucester to welcome him. Let’s get out there and cheer him on Wednesday March 27 4:30 (ish) at the Fisherman’s Memorial. Hoping to see you there! Say hello and cheers if you see him around town:
