Adam is supporting the American Brain Tumor Association (ABTA) by raising funds for brain tumor research, as well as support and education programs for brain tumor patients and their families. He has chosen ABTA to honor the legacy of his good friend, Mark Smith, who passed away from brain cancer last November.
During this adventure his hope is to raise as much money as possible for ABTA and keep the #SmithStrong legacy alive.
The money raised will help make an impact in the lives of those touched by a brain tumor diagnosis. ABTA’s programs – including their educational webinar series and their CareLine, where you can speak to a licensed health care professional – allow patients and families to know that they are not alone.

About Adam Kimble
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. 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. Injuries unfortunately put a stop to his push for the record but 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.
