Adam Kimble

Big Blue Adventure Ambassador

Adam Kimble is an ultrarunner and motivational speaker from Tahoe City, CA.  He previously spent three years as an Event Director in Chicago, planning festivals and events with up to 75,000 participants. After recognizing his calling was not in event planning, he took a leap of faith and followed his passion for travel, spending a year traveling internationally with his wife, Karen. During that year abroad, Adam won and set the course record for the 4Deserts Gobi March 250k, an international ultramarathon with competitors from over 40 countries.  Upon their return to the US, Adam’s life-trajectory was completely altered and he resolved to pursue ultrarunning and motivational speaking full-time.

In April of 2016, Adam finished a journey of 2,500 miles over the course of 60 days to cross the USA on foot.  Subsequently, in November of 2016, he successfully completed a 60-day journey alone in the wilderness of South America to win Discovery Channel’s survivalist show, The Wheel. Most recently, in July 2017, he completed a 31-day, 1,050-mile journey self-supported on foot across Great Britain (Scotland, England and Wales), becoming part of the first duo to ever run the length of Great Britain and summit the highest peak in each country along the way.  Adam now has a mission to help others push through the ceiling and achieve the ‘impossible’ in their lives
