Kevin Carr

Kevin Carr is a 32 year old British Ultra-Marathon runner from Dartmoor, Devon. His love for running began in 2007. In 2008 he ran the perimeter of his home county of Devon, 299.67 miles in 10 days and in 2009 became the first person to run the length of the UK from Lands End to John O' Groats but the hard way, off road and unsupported. His next venture will hopefully see him take two world records as he circumnavigates the world on foot.

He believed long before the arrival of the horse from [...]
