Using all or part of 20 rail and canal trails and 2000 miles of road, the Run Across America on Trail (RAAoT) followed in the footsteps of the 1992-1995 TRANSAMs, the 2002 and 2004 Runs Across America, and the 2011 LA to New York Footrace. The run started at Twin Harbors State Park in Washington at the Pacific Ocean, and the run ended at Cape Henlopen State Park in Delaware at the eastern terminus of the American Discovery Trail and the Atlantic Ocean. A good accounting of the Run can be found at

Runner on the scenic 108 mile George S. Mickelson Rail Trail in South Dakota. The entire Mickelson Trail was to be part of the Run Across America on Trail route. Fires in Montana forced a reroute of the Run so only five miles of the trail were used for the RAAoT.
