In June 2014, Brian attempted to run across Oregon and Idaho, making his 32nd and 33rd states crossed on foot. Unfortunately, about halfway across Oregon, he suffered a bad ankle sprain due to heavy traffic on a narrow road. It was the first time in 19 years that he had to end a run early.
Brian Stark, aka the States Runner, is back in training! After a bad ankle injury June 2014 he is again training and looking forward to some long winter training runs. If all goes well, he hopes to resume his run across Oregon and Idaho in summer of 2015.
