P.A.C.E. Trek 2011 - Mojave DesertThis is P.A.C.E. Trek 2011 Destination: Mojave Desert. P.A.C.E. is "Promoting Active Children Everywhere". School teams from 9 countries registered to virtually run/walk this challenging route! Paul Staso is a Journey Runner who actually (not virtually!) runs solo across states and countries to promote youth fitness globally. He has run alone across the United States; Germany; Alaska; Montana and now the Mojave Desert! His latest journey began April 14, 2011. Paul became the first person to run solo and unsupported across the Mojave Desert 506 miles from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, across the Mojave Desert, to Badwater Basin, Death Valley (the lowest, hottest and driest location on the North American continent). Student teams ran/walked a few minutes daily for 12 days as Paul was on the road. Why did Paul choose the Mojave? Click here to learn why! As with his other "P.A.C.E. Trek" adventures, thousands of school children from around the world ran and walked with Paul, logging miles in teams around school playgrounds, tracks and gymnasiums. Paul does these mega-distance treks to encourage an active/healthy lifestyle in children, promote goal setting, and to teach kids about locations beyond their school boundaries in a fun and challenging way. So far, he's logged 206 marathons in 184 days doing P.A.C.E. runs across states and countries, a total of 5,386 miles averaging 30 miles per day pushing a jogging stroller weighing 80+ pounds, which carries essential gear. This web site chronicles his amazing 17-day Mojave Desert journey during April 2011.
