As well as remaining unbeaten in every event he has entered in the Toughest race series plus conquering the OCR world for 4 years in a row, Jon has also turned his attention to the awe-inspiring world of Skyrunning – a sport which is defined as races taking place at over 2,000m altitude over extremely technical trails.
