TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - A man's desire to help the hungry in southern Arizona has led him to run 106 miles in under 30 hours.
Dan Heston has been running ultra marathons for years, but has never gone further than 100 kilometers, or about 62 miles. Just over the last nine months, he's logged 1,400 miles and will soon add 106 more miles to the count.
"I start Friday morning on the 17th at 3 a.m.. I will run through the day, into the night, and I will finish in 27 hours. I have a finish time by 6:30 Saturday, right before the National Anthem of the El Tour de Tucson," Heston tells KGUN9.
