Carl Mountford

Carl has been a KARC director in 2021 and a member since 2018. Despite confessing to hating running when he was at school growing up in England, Carl took up running in 2015 to help manage work stress. When working in drilling and completions for a major oil and gas company he’s been able to run on work trips in places as far apart as Alaska, Aberdeen, and Azerbaijan and running has developed into his number one hobby. Now retired, most of his running is done in Katy, and he’s found the friends he’s made in the local running community to be a new ‘family’. Carl has run 11 marathons and 22 half-marathons, the first full-distance being San Antonio in 2016. His current goal is to run Boston, and hopefully, that will be in 2022! Carl is married to Natalie, a Canadian, and has 2 girls – Olivia 14, and Lauren 12 – both born in Alaska. He is also a fanatical supporter of Liverpool FC and is always keen to make sure his girls – in Katy HS and Wood Creek JH- follow the path of being a Red!
