Passionate vegan and ultra-long distance runner, Stuart Repon-Ness is currently undertaking a 1500-mile run up the west coast of America, from San Diego to Seattle, to raise awareness of PTSD.
As a former British soldier, Stuart returned home suffering from the condition after serving in Iraq, but has since been on the road to recovery. Thanks to the help of caring mental health organisations.
Stuart now wishes to give something back by raising awareness and money for the organisations that helped him in his recovery, as well as indirectly displaying the superhuman feats possible on a plant-based diet.
Stuart began his run on 15 April at Plant Power Fast Food, San Diego and will be running an average of 26 miles a day for 50 consecutive days. The equivalent of 50 marathons!
Stuart is running in support of:
