Starting running at the age of 20 Jonathan Albon was a little late to the game. This didn’t stop him though and he quickly made a name for himself in the then up and coming UK obstacle course racing scene. He then took his exploits to the hills and mountains competing in and winning many ultra and mountain races alongside obstacle racing.
He first became known globally in 2014 when he traveled to and won both the Spartan and OCR world championships.
With two world champion titles to his name he went full time and enjoyed a successful 2015 defending his title in the OCR world championships, became the Toughest Mini tour champion, winning the Spartan European Championships and took the win at the renowned Tough Guy Race.
The event he is most proud to have won though comes in the form of a Skyrace in Tromso, Norway. Organised by the undisputed champion of mountain running, Kilian Jornet, Jonathan shocked the Skyrunning community by beating the Ultra Skyrunning World Champion of the time into first by 17 minutes.
