UND student runs from Grand Forks to oil patch

WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - An exhausted University of North Dakota student says he danced, screamed and ate potato chips after finishing a 13-day run between Grand Forks and the state's oil patch to raise awareness about the environmental impacts of oil.

Caleb Kobilansky arrived in Williston on Friday. The 22-year-old says he originally planned on running 360 miles but likely ran farther.

Kobilansky was joined by 21-year-old Tom Fisher who followed on bicycle carrying supplies.

The pair stayed on back roads for the journey. Kobilansky says dust created by oil field traffic made running difficult and dangerous during the last leg of the trip.

The pair say they hope to release a documentary on the internet about their journey across the back roads of the changing state.
