Posted in Random » Awesome   22 May 2018   / 3561 views

Many people inspired by the 90’s classic movie ‘Forrest Gump’ have attempted to run across the length of America, but few have succeeded

One of the people that did accomplish this impressive feat is 39-year-old veterinarian Rob Pope from Liverpool

He spent 19 months reenacting the famous scene from the movie and managed to run more than 15,000 miles across America

Rob has already crossed the country 4 times

There’s no doubt that Rob took inspiration from the movie

“I just felt like running,” said Rob quoting Forrest Gump

His main motivation for running was raising money for charity

He has managed to raise £30,000 already

During his epic run across America, he took a short break to come back to the UK to witness the birth of his daughter

Rob broke the World’s Guinness Record for the fastest marathon in a costume – dressed as Forrest Gump.

The runner admits that during his legendary run, he had to power through the physical pain from several injuries, and fight extreme exhaustion

After completing the run Rob proposed to his long-term girlfriend

“Nadine has been my rock, I couldn’t have done it without her – proposing on that moment felt right”
