LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A Las Vegas man is running 100 miles to bring awareness to veteran suicide.

Peter Makredes started running on Sunday at 8 a.m. and kept going until around 8 a.m. on Monday, which is Memorial Day. He completed the run around a loop just under half-a-mile long at Exploration Peak Park. The feat took well over 200 laps.

You can check his Instagram account at @peter_the_dream. This is a video he shared of the first mile:
