Harvey Lewis Runs
the Appalachian Trail

When he isn’t teaching high school or guiding clients on overseas adventures, Harvey Lewis is running. It’s what drives him to push his limits, to redefine what’s possible. And that very mindset is what inspired his current challenge: running the Appalachian Trail faster than anyone in history. Almost 2,200 miles across 14 states in just over 40 days. Crazy? Perhaps. But that hasn’t stopped him yet.

We all have goals in life—just like Harvey. Things that push us, that make us better. Join us as we follow along and support him on his epic journey.

Harvey’s Gear

Harvey is utilizing all kinds of nifty gear on his journey. He glides through the hills of Appalachia in his trusty Newtons, devouring copious amounts of Clif Bar for sustenance. He’s shielded from the elements by 2XU, with a body that’s finely tuned by the engineers at Structural Elements. And you know he’s rocking his ROAD iD for endless empowerment and peace of mind. You go, Harvey.
