Fast Eddy’s race against time was a success, with two hours to spare.

On September 19th, Edward Dostaler, also known as Fast Eddy, met a road block during his run across Canada. He found out he had five days to run 420 kilometres in order to make the ferry in Sydney Nova Scotia before it shut down for the winter on September 25th.

Dostaler calculated he would have to run 85 kilometres a day to make it in time and he made it, two hours ahead of schedule.

Dostaler is originally from Kamloops and began his cross country run back on March 1st in Victoria. His final destination is in St. John’s Newfoundland, where he will then begin his running journey back across Canada.

His cross country run is in support of Alzheimer awareness and breast cancer research.
