To continue inspiring ordinary people to achieve extraordinary things.

I’m Jermayne, a 29-year-old male from London. I currently work within sporting events within the third sector as I love to help others through the medium of sport. I’ve been running approximately 6 years (on a more serious level). I was also a sporty kid at school, regularly taking part in every sport under the sun and was a member of every sports team there was going. 

Running became more important in my life when I moved to the big city. I found running as a tool to socialise, make long lasting friendships but also as a release from the hustle and bustle of working in the city. It gives me a way to tune out and recharge my batteries. After catching the bug, I haven’t looked back since!

In everything I do, I always aim to inspire people to be the best version of themselves. In running terms, whether that’s running your first 5k, half marathon or ultra, I really want people to believe they can achieve anything and as I like to say, see ordinary people doing extraordinary things.

I’m lucky in a sense that I’m a huge believer in self-motivation and I try to push myself to learn something new or achieve something every day. I am also constantly motivated by those around me to go beyond expectations.

"You only fail if you don’t try. Do more than you think is possible!"
“Do it and do not search for excuses.”
“Ordinary people can achieve extraordinary things.”
“Be calm, be confident, be cheerful.”
