One Man Just Broke the World Record & Ran Around the Globe In 621 Days

May 18, 2015 2 min read

We know how exhausting even a 12min HIIT workout can be - imagine running the equivalent of a marathon every day for more than two years... That's what 35 year old Kevin Carr just did. Carr just set a world record after completing his run around the world, breaking the previous record by one day. Carr covered 16,300 miles in 621 days - an average of more than 26 miles PER DAY! He dropped a whopping 42 pounds and sadly said goodbye to 16 pairs of running shoes. Carr is now the youngest person to run around the world. Even crazier? Carr is the first runner to circumnavigate the globe without support. He traveled alone and carried of all his own equipment (this includes food, water, and camping supplies that weighed over 100 pounds) Screen Shot 2015-04-12 at 2.13.23 PM Over the course of Carr's journey, he ran through 26 countries, pushing through conditions like extreme flooding as well temperatures ranging between -30 and 55 degrees celsius. He dealt with the flu, severe heatstroke, a quad injury oh - and pursuit by both a black bear and a pack of wild dogs. Did we mention he got hit by a car - twice? Regardless, Carr stayed strong, making up time he lost by averaging 45 miles a day for the last month of his trek. Screen Shot 2015-04-12 at 1.50.39 PM As if this physical achievement wasn't awe-inspiring enough - Carr's motivation to begin the journey really sets him apart: Carr, who has previously suffered from depression, decided to attempt this feat to raise money for mental health charity SANE. Carr said: "I aimed to provide a very real demonstration that an 'ill mind' is in no way a 'weak mind' and that there is no shame in mental illness and it needn't hold you back" Screen Shot 2015-04-12 at 2.09.10 PM Congrats to Kevin from all of us at Bodyrock! You are truly an inspiration (and now we really have no excuse when it comes time to do a 12 min HIIT workout...ever...) To check out Kevin's website click here.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
