Iain Jones Knoxville, TN - PATH projects KREW

Iain Jones running in Zion

I'm originally from South Africa but only became a runner after I arrived in the US in 2003. I've progressed from 5k to my first marathon in 2007 and then to trail ultras after completing Comrades in 2015. I don't belong to a formal club but enjoy getting out on the trails with friends whenever possible.

Running accomplishment(s) you are proud of

Running a series of races in the national parks - Zion, Bryce, Grand Canyon, and Joshua Tree (all different distances). I simply love exploring God's creation in this amazing country that I'm fortunate enough to live in.

Any races or adventures on your horizon and / or bucket list?

Grand Canyon R2R2R and Badwater Salton Sea (need a partner for April 2021).

Your favorite PATH projects gear?

Sykes PX-7

What do you enjoy about running? 

The opportunity to take in God's beauty and creation, while stewarding the body He gave me and making friends along the way. Every distance, terrain and race is a different challenge that I love adapting to.
