Welcome, Travel RUnner!

Hey there, I’m Kyle Cash — the guy behind The Travel Runner.

Originally from a small town in Ohio, I soon caught the travel bug and ventured out into the world.

And over the past 5+ years, I found a sweet spot where my love for running trails meets exploring new places. So far, I’ve had the chance to discover 20+ countries and live in some pretty cool places like Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, and Mexico.

Running has taken me to some incredible spots.

I’ve tackled ultramarathons and trail races worldwide. Some of my favorites include The Monkeys Trail in Koh Samui and the Canyons Endurance Run in California.

Oh, and there’s this one run in Thailand during the height of COVID-19. It was a virtual ultramarathon where I hustled through 80 kilometers of the Thai jungle over 12 hours. Didn’t hit the 100-kilometer goal, but man, what an adventure!

It just fueled me to keep exploring different countries and helping others to do the same.

I’ve had the honor of sharing my stories on MSN and Medium, which was pretty awesome. Through these platforms, I got to connect with so many like-minded wanderers and runners.

Now, I’m thrilled to have you here, and I’d love to hear your take on trails and places that have left a mark on you.

Your insights could be the next compass directing where The Travel Runner ventures next. Feel free to share your thoughts, and don’t hesitate to reach out. It’s the shared experiences and stories that keep this journey exciting and ever-evolving.

Let’s keep the conversation going and continue to explore the running trails of the world together!
