Born and raised in Vancouver, BC, Jeff always enjoyed hiking and camping in the local mountains and trekking abroad. But it wasn’t until he began running at the age of 27, first dabbling in road marathons before finding trail running, that his passion for mountain adventure really developed.
As an ultra distance runner and Salomon Canada athlete ambassador, he now competes in distances internationally from 50 km to over 200 miles. What he enjoys most is spending time training in the backcountry, while working through a growing list of self-supported runs like the Grand Canyon double-crossing, the 93-mile Wonderland Trail around Mt. Rainier, the Sunshine Coast Trail, and Tahoe Rim Trail - making films about his adventures along the way for his YouTube channel.
“I love getting up into the mountains in the winter, something that’s easy to do with the right equipment. But it wasn’t until I discovered Hillsound crampons that I was finally able to continue my training with confidence all year-round"
