Subject: *AT thru-runner seeks help (cross-post)

I am writing on behalf of Cliff Tell, a 33 year-old runner who is attempting
to break David Horton's Appalacian Trail speed record.  Cliff will need to
cover over 41 mi/day to finish in about 52 days (2100+ miles).  He will
embark from Springer Mtn., GA on May 12 and attempt to finish by early
   Cliff is getting support (some food and clothing) from PowerBar, but
needs support from people along the way for housing and trail company.
Currently he is "supported" on about half the route, and is looking for
additional volunteers to act as handlers or pacers, or to put him up
near the trail at night.  He will have all his own supplies (no need to
feed him)- he even promises you Power Bars if you can get him a place
to stay.  He is especially looking for help in NC, NY, NJ, and parts of
VA and ME.
    If you (or someone you know) would like to help, please contact:

      Cliff Tell
      2146 Military Rd.
      Arlington, VA  22207
      (703) 524-3269

Also feel free to forward this message to other people or lists that may
be interested in this attempt.
