Born and raised in Calgary AB Jason was involved in amateur sports from a young age, playing baseball, basketball and volleyball. After a long hiatus from sports, Jason, got into long distance running and obstacle course racing after signing up for a local event with friends from his gym. Loving the physical and mental challenge that running and obstacle course racing provided, he found himself crushing his goals and pushing towards new limits. Jason is now an elite obstacle course racer who attends many events in Canada and the USA, he constantly strives to build his skillset to be the best racer he can be.
When not training for a race, you can find Jason sharing his love for sport and physical activity with others as he is a certified group fitness instructor. He was recently named a 2018 Rising Star by his peers due to his high energy, challenging and always motiving fitness classes.
Jason understands what it is like to grow up and be denied access to sport due to lack of funds. Thus, he is grateful to now be in a position where he can give back to KidSport in hopes to ensure children are given every opportunity to participate in sport regardless of background or financial situation.
