Ryan Kent is a professional obstacle course racer from Yorktown, Virginia. He began running when he was just 4 years old and has been pushing himself through fitness ever since. He ran his first Spartan Race in the summer of 2014 and was hooked! In 2015, Kent earned a spot on the Spartan Pro Team after establishing himself as one of the top obstacle racers in the world and is still on the team 4 years later. In just 3 years of competing, he won 28 overall elite Spartan Races and nearly 50 podium finishes.
To call himself a Spartan World Champion some day would be truly an honor, but being able to look back and say that he was able to inspire others is the legacy he hopes to leave.
