Richard Kell


Having always described himself as an armchair sports fan, at home on the sofa with a cold beer, Richard’s view rapidly changed in 2009 on holiday in Turkey. There he met a British serviceman who had lost a leg in Afghanistan. This inspired Richard to embark on an incredible journey to become an ultra-marathon runner. Having run his first marathon to raise funds for Help for Heroes, in 2010 Richard went on to run a marathon of marathons with 26 runs in the year.
