Kristian Morgan is an ultra-runner, coach and podcast host with his sights set on breaking massive records.  After covering over 1000 miles of the Appalachian Trail last year as part of the support team for Belgian runner Karel Sabbe’s FKT, Kristian was intent on taking on the same challenge himself, until Covid scuppered his plans.

With the hunger for an epic challenge already in him, and with some close ties to the iconic South West Coast Path here in the UK, Kristian decided he’d make an attempt at breaking Damian Hall’s already impressive record.
