Everything Endurance #10 | 60 days Alone in the Wilderness with Adam Kimble

In 2016 Adam Kimble spent 60 days running across America and 60 days alone in the wilderness for the survival TV show The Wheel. In July he will spend 31 days running around the UK with our very own Kris King after which we are pretty sure he will want to head back into the woods.

Adam Kimble ran his first 5km race in 2009 which resulted in a second place in his age group, some painful cramps and the beginning of a life of running based adventure!

Since then he has progressed quickly.  Among others his race CV includes coming third in the Yellowstone-Teton 100 in 2014, winning the Gobi March and setting a course record in 2015 and placing second in the 2016 Burning River 100.

2016 turned out to be a massive year with Adam making an attempt at the trans-american world record.  The injuries unfortunately put a stop to his push for the record he continued on his way and successfully made it from one ocean to the other in 60 days.  If that weren’t enough he also spent 60 days stranded alone in the wilderness for Discovery channel’s survival show, The Wheel.

In this episode Will, Kris and Kimbledore talk about all of the above and King and Kimble’s upcoming Great British Adventure.  The pair are heading out in July to run from John O’Groats to Lands End, taking in the 3 highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales along the way, in 31 days.
