Jamie Ramsay was born and raised in Scotland. He graduated from Oxford Brookes University before heading to the City to forge a career at a top international communications consultancy. After twelve years and being promoted to Partner, he realised that he didn't feel happy, fulfilled or excited about where his life was heading. He took the brave decision to quit his job and focus on his passions - running, travelling and adventure.
Running the Americas became the starting point for a new career as an Endurance Adventurer that has seen him cover over 30,000km in 30 countries over a five-year period.
Jamie's adventures include:
17,000km solo run from Canada to Argentina
6962m summit of Aconcagua
4027km solo cycle across Australia
3,700km solo cycle from Sao Paulo to La Paz
800km wilderness trek along Hayduke trail
