Route 66 News

Notes from the road

Ultramarathoner Phil Rosenstein is running the entire length of Route 66 — and beyond — for charity.

He started a little more than two weeks ago in Santa Monica, Calif., and has already made it near the Arizona-New Mexico border. After completing his Mother Road trek to Chicago, he plans to keep going all the way to Atlantic City, N.J.

The money he’s raising during his trip will be given to the Mario Lemieux Foundation for cancer research and assistance. If anyone wishes to help, he’s asking for anyone along Route 66 to put him up for a night as he passes through to help keep his travel costs low.
