Dave Cockman, 57, covered 664.44 miles in 14 days, 11 hours and 28 minutes to raise money for wounded war veterans

Fueled by biscuits, waffles and hot dogs, Cary’s Dave Cockman plowed through North Carolina this month on a pair of legs that carried him more than 600 miles in two weeks on a quest to run from the Tennessee border at Murphy to the Atlantic Ocean at Nags Head.

Cockman, 57, started his journey in Murphy at 7 a.m. on April 4, and on Saturday he took his victory lap on Jennette’s Pier at 7:28 p.m.

When he finished at the end of the pier overlooking the sea, Cockman checked the GPS strapped on his wrist and announced he had covered 664.44 miles in 14 days, 11 hours and 28 minutes.

...At 5-foot-10 and 167 pounds, Cockman is a durable athlete. Last year, he wrapped up the Grand Slam of Ultra Running, consisting of the Western States 100-Mile Endurance Run, the Vermont 100-Mile Endurance Run, the Leadville Trail 100-Mile Run and the Wasatch Front 100-Mile Endurance run all in the same year.

Finding Traction at Green Mtn Film Festival #VT100 #Ultrarun #VermontAdaptive #VT #NH


Friday March 27 12:30 p.m.
Savoy Theater


SPREAD THE WORD!
"Finding Traction" presents the inspirational story of ultra runner Nikki Kimball and her quest to become the fastest person in history to run America's oldest hiking trail, the 273-mile Long Trail.

The documentary asks what drives her to attempt such an incredible feat, and follows Nikki's journey from its beginning - training and racing in the Rocky mountains - to her actual record attempt through Vermont's beautiful but brutal Green Mountains. Throughout the film, Nikki's crew and support team provide an intimate portrayal of the courage, grit, and passion behind her record attempt, and interviews with the world's leading evolutionary biologists, including Bernd Heinrich, author of "Why We Run," shed light on the science and psychology behind Nikki's incredible race against time.

For Nikki, this well-publicized run is more than a chance to inspire people to be active and spend time outdoors, it's her way of encouraging women and girls to take an equal place for themselves in professional sports. In addition to providing an inside look into the journey of an elite athlete, "Finding Traction" gives viewers a new perspective on the endurance of the human body and spirit, and informs us all us, regardless of our sex, of our true potential and inspires us to reach it.
