Safety Director completes 100 mile Ultra Marathon

Jason Harrison, Managing Director of Northern Bear Safety, really does like to go the extra mile, and more.

Jason completed an epic 100 mile non-stop run from Richmond in South West London to the centre of Oxford during very hot weather. The course followed the meandering route of the Thames against its flow, showing off the best of English riverside scenery and life on the Thames.

Jason commented: “I have completed a few ultra-marathons but this was the first time I had taken on the iconic 100 mile distance. The hot weather put paid to my hopes of completing the race in under 24 hours and the night section was hard to navigate and tough mentally but I completed the run under the official cut off time in 27 hours and 19 minutes so I am pleased with that. I’m taking a break from running over the summer but am always looking out for the next challenge!”
