Beschreibung

Adventure sports changed his life. The Race to the Midnight Sun nearly ended it.
Upside Down in the Yukon River is an inspiring true story of an ordinary guy from Iowa who attempts the world's longest kayak race, and ends up fighting for his very survival deep in the wilderness of Canada's Yukon Territory. Full of anticipation and fear, successes and failures, doubt and hope, Steve's story challenges each one of us to live every precious moment to the fullest, and reminds us all that our only real failure is a step never taken in pursuit of our dream.

Steve Cannon runs. He fat bikes, kayaks, and skis. We doubt he would call himself a runner, biker, kayaker, or skier, however. He would most likely refer to himself as an adventurer. In 2018, Steve completed his greatest challenge to date: The Iditarod Trail Invitational 350 in Alaska-one of the top ten extreme ultra-endurance races in the world.

He has completed the Tuscobia Winter Ultra 150 twice on his fat bike. He has three Arrowhead Ultra 135 finishes and in 2018 did so "unsupported," meaning all food and water had to be carried start to finish. In 2016, Steve earned induction into the Order of the Hrimthurs, the Triple Crown for winter ultra-endurance athletes.

He has run nearly 100 marathons and has taken on the world's longest kayak race: The Yukon River Quest. This adventure would become the story for Steve's second book Upside Down in the Yukon River (2018).

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. He has completed over twenty Register's Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa (RAGBRAI), five Ride-the-Rockies, and made it five times through the Dirty Kanza 200, the world's premier gravel cycling race, earning a coveted "1000 Miles of Kanza" goblet in 2017.

He ran the 292 miles across his home state of Iowa in eleven days and is the first person ever to run around the Lake Michigan, logging 1,037 miles in forty days-averaging a marathon's distance per day. This adventure and its lessons became his first book 40 Days: Life, Love, Loss and a Historic Run Around One of the World's Largest Lakes (2015).

His adventures have raised nearly $700,000 for Livestrong, Camp Kesem, and Above and Beyond Cancer.
