THE WORLDS TOUGHEST FOOTRACE - 'FASTEST RUNNER AROUND THE WORLD'
July 28th 2013, Dartmoor, Devon, U.K
British Ultramarathon runner Kevin Carr began running East, running an Ultramarathon most days, his route will see him run over deserts, frozen arctic climes and high altitude mountain passes as he traverses 5 continents back to back. Some 26,232km, solo and self supported. This entails not only running an Ultramarathon most days, but also carrying all running, camping, first aid and tracking kit necessary to complete the effort. Across remote stretches Kevin will be pushing more than his own body weight in kit, food and water. "I aim to provide a very real demonstration that an 'ill mind' is in no way a 'weak mind' there is no shame in mental illness and it needn't hold you back". His goals:
- provide a very real demonstration that an 'ill mind' is in no way a 'weak mind
- become the first runner to circumnavigate the globe self supported/solo.
- become the fastest runner around the world

Quite simply without a firm belief in the importance of pushing boundaries. Calculating & overcoming risks, in order to reach unprecedented goals, no company would have backed an expedition of this scale - one that many would simply consider impossible. Cocoon's vision of pushing boundaries coupled with their generous financial backing is the only reason this run became a possibility. A sincere thank you -Kevin Carr.
