1–2 Mar 2025 277 days to go! #BostonRunShow

Scott Jenkins

“When I look back on life, I want to have lived a life through adventure and doing some good at the same time”. 

This is Scott’s life motto and the very one that saw him enter the world of ultra running in 2010 by running from Boston (starting at AT O’ Keeffe’s previously called McGreevy’s across the road from the convention centre) and finishing 2000 miles (75 days later) in Austin, Texas. Scott is a speaker, philanthropist (he is an ambassador for Operation Smile), corporate athlete (employee of J&J) and ultrarunner with his preferred distance 200+ miles non-stop. 

“If a positive outcome was guaranteed, it wouldn’t be a challenge in the first place”.

For Scott, this is what propels him to continuously look at new ways to challenge himself and in 2023, he became the 1st Brit to complete the audacious Triple Crown of 200 mile runs, whilst living in the UK, seeing him complete 220 and a 210 mile races within 2 weeks of one another, finishing 5th overall. For Scott, these experiences are adventures anyone can have and he believes ultrarunning is a microcosm for life.
