I just arrived in Oaxaca a couple of hours ago after a 56km day. Lots of drama including a flood that washed away a bridge and half of the road at km 240. A couple of nights before I was camping beside a similar bridge at km 167.

 Shattered after 8 days on the road, no possibility  of internet access. Wrongly asuming there would be an atm machine on my route I arrived here with just 25.5 pesos and no shower :(   in 8 days! What a Blast!

The Federal Govt and State Secretario de Turismo support that I enjoyed so much all the way from Tecate, through Baja and central Mexico more or less ended in Mexico City. I have been running more or less unsupported these last two weeks through Puebla and Oaxaca states.

Here is my route from Oaxaca to the Guateamalan border. Press  HERE   and wait for map and details to load.

Will update soon.

Thanks to Angeles Verdes Pablo, especially journalist Eduardo for contacting  a sponsor of high acheiving athletes. Montserrat was about to pay for my hotel and upon talking to the Oaxaca State Governor, Gabino Cue Montcagudo. The Governor picked up the tab.

Thank you Gobernador for putting me up in the Fortin Plaza Hotel for 2 nights. I will take a rest day tomorrow, Tuesday which will include a press conference at the hotel.

    EDITED BY TONY. THANKS FOR THIS EDUARDO! Here is a rough google translation with the Spanish original below. Note my run will be at least 50,000km and all distance mentioned should be kilometers. Sometimes Google mixes up words like ‘ run ‘ and ‘walk ‘
    ALSO > Please click on the 7 excellent photos Eduardo took on my arrival into Oaxaca last night. Photos are on the right side of his webpage. Muchas Gracias Eduardo!Estoy muy feliz!

    Hi Tony, glad to see you are still making steady progress but must say I’m glad I can’t smell you after 8 days and no shower. Continue to succeed and enjoy your well deserved rest day from the road. However I know the blog work continues. Take care Ann :)

About Tony

I have always considered myself to be an average runner. In school, I was even bullied for I was a sports wimp. Through hard work, dedication, perseverance, self-belief and a strong mind I succeeded in not only running around the world but breaking four ultra running world records during my competitive career. Having previously cycled around the world I didn't start running until I was almost 30. Then I had a dream of running around the world. For many reasons, I waited for over 20 years. One reason was to establish my pedigree as an endurance athlete. I started and finished my world run as the current World Record-Holder for 48 Hours Indoor Track 426 kilometres (265 miles), a record I have held since 2007. I also broke and still hold the World Record for 48 hours on a Treadmill 405 kilometres (251 miles) in 2008. When I retired from competition, more pleasing than any of my world, European or Irish records I had the respect of my fellow athletes from all over the world - in my opinion, sports greatest reward - an achievement I am most proud of. Then I finally put myself out to pasture, to live my ultimate dream to run around the world! This blog was written on the road while I struggled to find places to sleep and to recover from running an average of 43.3 kilometres or 27 miles per day for 1,165 road days. There were many nights I typed this blog on a smart phone, so fatigued my eyes closed. Many journalists and endurance athletes have referred to my world run as the most difficult endurance challenge ever attempted. During my expedition I rarely had any support vehicles, running mostly with a backpack. In the more desolate areas I pushed my gear, food and water in a cart which I called Nirvana, then I sent her on ahead to run with my backpack once again over altitudes of almost 5,000 metres in the Andes. I stayed in remote villages where many people had never seen a white person before. I literally met the most wonderful people of this world in their own backyard and share many of those amazing experiences in this blog. My run around the world took 4 years. There were no short cuts, I ran every single metre on the road while seeking out the most comprehensive route across 41 countries, 5 continents, I used 50 pair of running shoes and my final footstep of the run was exactly 50,000 kilometres, (almost 31,000 miles) I eventually finished this tongue in cheek named world jog where I started, at the finish line of my city marathon. I started my global run with the Dublin Marathon on October 25th 2010 and finished with the Dublin Marathon on October 27th 2014 at 3 05pm! Thank you for your support, I hope you can share my unique way of seeing the world, the ultimate endurance challenge! Read more...
