Welcome to History Expeditions, where we combine trail running with historical discovery. In 2020, two ultra-distance trail runners and friends, Bob Crowley and Tim Twietmeyer, conceived the idea of bringing two their passions together: trail running and history, into an activity they called History Expeditions.
Since then, they have organized several Expeditions designed to research and reveal historically significant discoveries (trails, places, artifacts, new facts, etc...). The goal for each Expedition is to discover new findings and honor the historical protagonist's survivalism and heroism. The stories that emerge from the research serve to inspire Tim and Bob, their Expedition teammates, Elke Reimer and Jennifer Hemmen, and hopefully you.
We invite you to delve into each Expedition by following the links below. We will continue to add new adventures to this site.
