Starting at Santa Monica pier in California and ending in New York, New York, in 35 days. The following year Alex ran 200km across the Amazon in Peru and 240km of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado.
In 2018, he received an invitation to take part in Primal Quest in British Columbia, Canada. Alex accepted and joined ‘Team Out There’ (including Mike Klosser – 5 x world adventure racing champion) with only 20 days to prepare.
