Running with the Big Dog

50 States and 7 Continents – Clyde Shank form Plano, Texas has done it all!

Clyde Shank of Plano Texas ran his 50th State on March 18, 2012 when he finished the 26.2 miler in the Big Island International Marathon.


Shank has run of all 7 continents once and will complete this feat twice when he runs in New Zealand in October and the North Pole – 90 degrees North.


Shank is the first person from the State of Texas to do so! 

 What is also amazing is that he turns 65 in August!

 Shank was given the #50 when he ran in Hilo to complete his 50th state.

 Continued success to this amazing athlete and thank you for making Hilo your 50th state.
