Ep. 719: Expand Your Possible - Steve Cannon

Powered by RedCircle

Steve’s story is one that’ll get you pumped to start planning your next adventure and eliminate all excuses as to why you can’t or shouldn’t. Steve Cannon runs, fat bikes, kayaks, and skis but he wouldn’t call himself a runner, biker, kayaker, or skier, however. He would most likely refer to himself as an adventurer. 

Here’s why:

  • Steve has run nearly 100 marathons.
  • Competed in the world’s longest kayak race.  
  • Completed the Tuscobia Winter 150 twice on his fat bike. 
  • Finished the Arrowhead 135 three times, and most recently did so unsupported. 
  • In 2004, he rode his bike to the starting line of the Deadwood Mickelson Trail Marathon in South Dakota—beginning in Iowa—before running the marathon and continuing on another 1900 miles and 38 days. 
  • Completed over twenty RAGBRAIs.
  • Completed eight Gravel World Championships in Nebraska.
  • Completed four Ride-the-Rockies,
  • Completed the Dirty Kanza 200 five times, earning a coveted “1000 Miles of Kanza” goblet in 2017 while also "beating the sun". 
  • He was the second person to run the 292 miles across his home state of Iowa in 11 days (averaging a marathon distance each day) and is the first person ever to run around the great Lake Michigan, logging 1,037 miles in forty days - This pursuit also became his first book "40 Days", which you can download for free here.
  • CompletedJay Petervary's 200-Mile Fat Pursuit in West Yellowstone, Idaho. You can relive the journey and incredible fight to the finish (along with the rest of Steve's adventures this year) here.
  • In 2018 Steve completed the Iditarod Trail 350-mile bike race.
  • In 2019 he became the very first Iowan to complete the 1000-mile Iditarod Trail Invitational bike race from Anchorage to Nome, Alaska. This historic race was documented in the movie '1000 Miles to Nome' which is available at ExpandYourPossible.com.
  • His adventures have raised nearly $700,000 for Livestrong, Camp Kesem, Above and Beyond Cancer, and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society,
