Who exactly is Jason Smith? Well, he’s a 40 something Challenge British Adventurer that lives in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset. Born and raised in the coastal town.
Since the 1980’s Jason has been setting personal goals and challenges that include Summits, Ultra-Marathons, Long Treks also managing to set a British Record with an Extreme Challenge with his “Mind over Matter” concept. He simply loves the outdoors and setting goals, planning and achieving memorable events, in challenges and in business. For his profession Jason runs a successful website marketing business and is a website designer in Weston-super-Mare.
In recent years Jason has seen himself taking on more Challenges, with amazing experiences as being involved in the worst avalanche in over 20 years while summiting Mont Blanc sadly seeing the deaths of 9 other climbers, he has also experienced severe altitude sickness and completed the TMB or better known as Le Tour Du Mont Blanc across the Alps of Italy, France and Switzerland.
In May/June 2014 Jason completed what many call “The Unthinkable” by running 7 Marathons in 7 Days, opting to change 7 continents for 7 Charities to help fundraise in excess of £10,000 with the final Marathon being an Ultra 31 mile Challenge across the Somerset Mendips. The 7x7x7 Challenge became a Physical and Mind Over Matter feat that took Jason onto his recent challenge which was successfully Cycling the full length of Britain called the JoGLE, starting at John o’Groats and finished at Lands End.
In September Jason cycled across Britain passing through London City at midnight to experience a night time ride visiting iconic landmarks before reaching Margate in Kent, 242 miles in under 24 hours of riding with friends and family member. The 2015 fundraising helped exceed £50,000 for amazing causes and one close to the heart of the Smith family. Jason intends to continue to fundraise as often as he can along with the epic challenges and adventures along the way.
In March 2016 Jason and a team of cyclists successfully completed the London2Paris24 hour Challenge in 22 hours 30 minutes to then run the Paris Half Marathon just 12 hours later.
This June sees Jason taking an adventure across various parts of Europe, the UK too with a 10 day wilderness trek across the Western Highlands and Scottish Inner Hebrides. Wild camping while carrying everything to sustain a truly wild experience.
Sometime this Summer Jason hopes to achieve what is known as “Everesting”, an endurance feat of cycling on an ascent to reach the height of Mount Everest, 29,029ft or 8,848metres. If the body can withstand such pain he hopes to push a little further and reach the epic landmark of 30,000ft “Hells 500” Hall of Fame.
The next event is always just around the corner so keep in touch, especially if you’d like to join him on a future challenge.
