Steve Cannon is an author, filmmaker, adventure athlete, keynote speaker, and believer in YOU.

What started with a 5K in his late 20s has turned into a lifelong passion of searching for the next big adventure, setting new goals, and trying to expand the limits of what he previously thought possible

One of Steve's greatest passions is helping those who are in the fight against cancer. His adventures have raised nearly $700,000 for Livestrong, Camp Kesem, Above and Beyond Cancer, and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society

1000 Miles...
Of grueling and unforgiving terrain.
Of wolf and bear tracks reminding you that you are not the king in this place.
Of unimaginable and humbling beauty.
Of unpredictable weather that tests even the most seasoned adventurer.
Of isolation and self reflection.
Of constantly fighting, reaching, crossing, and expanding both mental and physical limits.
1000 Nome.

Expand Your Possible

"If you live in our wonderful state of Iowa, the chances are that you have heard of Steve Cannon. His adventures have helped raise nearly a million dollars for those in the Cancer fight. He is our marathon man. His book, 40 Days, is an inspiring, at times funny, and at times heartbreaking read."

Cale Kistler, on '1000 Miles to Nome'

Steve Cannon’s “40 Days” is more than just a gripping account of his remarkable journey around Lake Michigan on foot; it is a story of love, compassion, and loss and, finally, of the strength of the human spirit that allows all of us to accomplish great things, if only we believe we can.
