Signed - limited edition hardback book:
'Mountain Marathon Man'
An Account of the Fastest runner around the world
The First athlete to ever run a solo circumnavigation of the world
April 9th 2015, British Ultra Marathon Runner Carr, successfully completed a gruelling 621 day expedition, running unaided a 16,300 Miles continuous loop around planet Earth, becoming:
The first person in history to run a solo circumnavigation of the world
The expedition twice entered the Arctic Circle, crossed India, the Canadian Northwest Territories, the Australian Nullarbor plain and climbed over the Andes Mountains,.
No support crew, no back up vehicle, no marked route, no aid stations. Using a combination of a backpack, a running-stroller and a purpose built cart - Carr carried all his support equipment including a satellite tracker that verified the attempt live. At times through remote stretches, where food wasn’t available for hundreds of miles in any direction - the cart weighed more than the runner pushing it!
This style of self-sufficient-self navigated running challenge, is known by runners in the UK
as a ‘Mountain Marathon’ this expedition was the greatest Mountain Marathon ever run.
This book takes us on one of the most sustained feats of endurance ever attempted. Running solo, coast to coast across 4 continents, through 26 countries, facing temperature extremes of -31C to 55C, twice hit by cars, fighting off wild dogs and stalked by Bears.
In order to break the existing record for running around the world Carr had to dramatically push the pace for the final stretch of the expedition. Running almost two full Marathons each and every day, for weeks on end. He made it, but only just, breaking the record by one day. Becoming:
The fastest Man around the world
