With the help of Google Earth and Wiki, I’ve got a rough draft, so to speak, of the places Clarke could run to. He’d like to stay on the East Coast as much as possible. However, some countries aren’t represented here on the East coast so he’ll need to travel to California and/or Hawaii among others.
Here’s the list in the order he may have traveled around the globe and the U.S. locations that have the highest populations from there.
1. Mexico (This is close enough that he may just run to Mexico for real) Guanajuato has 3 wk international festival of the arts in October.
