About Harvey Lewis, III
Harvey Lewis is an educator, adventurer and endurance athlete! In 2004, Harvey was
involved in a near fatal car accident that left him with a broken neck. Neurosurgeons rebuilt
his 4th and 5th vertebra with added titanium and bone implants. Since then, his recovery and
accomplishments have been nothing short of amazing.
Harvey went on to recover and to become a much stronger runner than he ever was
before. He won the Badwater 135, described by National Geographic as the world’s
toughest foot race, runners run 135 miles from the lowest point in the Western Hemisphere to
the portal of the highest mountain in the lower 48 states. The race is in Death Valley National
Park, the hottest place on the planet, where temperatures have reached 134 degrees
Fahrenheit. Two weeks ago he ran 156.3 miles in 24 hours to qualify for a 5th consecutive time
to represent Team USA at the 24 Hour World Championships.
Harvey’s adventures have taken him to 95 countries on all 7 continents largely on a
shoestring budget. Harvey has run many historic routes including Gandhi’s 241 mile Salt
March in India, the Selma Civil Rights March in Alabama and most recently the 2,190 miles of
the Appalachian Trail. Harvey’s epic journey on the Appalachian Trail with his father last
summer is chronicled in the recently released feature documentary “Like Harvey, Like Son.”
In August 2020, Harvey set the FKT between the lowest point in the continental U.S. (Death Valley) to the highest point (summit of Mt. Whitney).
