Biography

Jamie has become somewhat of an adventurer. Having spent most of the first nine years of his life in hospital as a result of a rare spinal condition, Jamie has spent many years giving back through phenomenal feats of emotional and physical endurance.

In 2012 when Jamie cycled 14,000 miles from Bangkok to Gloucester he slept rough, was shot at and arrested. Days later he broke the Guinness World Record for Non-stop Marathon Static Cycling, stepping off the bike after 268 hours (more than 11 days!).

If that wasn't enough he then ran 5000 miles (more than 200 marathons!) dressed as a superhero across Canada - the first person in history to do so without a support crew - and raised more than a quarter of a million pounds for hospitals. Jamie’s adventures made news all over the world.

Jamie is an international speaker and shares his story as just an ‘ordinary’ guy. Jamie speaks right from the heart and shows us the long lasting rewards of never giving up, embracing adversity and finding your inner superhero.
