Jason is a highly competitive runner who has represented Great Britain.
He has been running for over 20 years, starting whilst he was at school. At first running was for fitness to help with his football, but at the age of 17 he decided running was the way forward. Within a year he went from a steady athlete running at county level to winning his first national title at the British 5k champs. Since then running has been a massive part of his life and has taken him all over world, both competing and training.
His greatest achievement to date is representing Great Britain at the world championships. "I'm not an athlete who loves to win races, I would rather be in a massive race being pulled along to fast times, but winning is nice".
Throughout his running career Jason has been known for his dedication, hard work and selfishness whilst having fun.
