John Lees holds the record for the fastest coast-to-coast walk across the United States. Starting at Los Angeles City Hall on 11 April 1971, he walked for 53 days, 12 hours and 15 minutes to New York City Hall, finishing on 3 June 1971. He is now the sports reporter for BBC Sussex and BBC Surrey.
He made a return visit to New York City Hall to mark the 30th anniversary of his amazing feat of endurance. This nostalgic event was covered by BBC Southern Counties Radio.
