Leaving The Rat Race For A Life Of Adventure With Jamie Ramsey -Everything Endurance Podcast

Jamie Ramsay is an award-winning British Endurance Adventurer. After 12 years of successfully living and working at a stressful job in London, Jamie realized he was unhappy with the direction of his life and that if he didn’t make some drastic changes then things would continue to spiral downwards.

His rather audacious solution was to quit his job (where he was a newly promoted Partner), fly to Vancouver, and run 17,000km to Buenos Aires completely unsupported.

Since his leap into the unknown, Jamie has traveled the world running, climbing and trekking his way across some of the worlds most iconic places, from running across the Atacama Desert, Cycling across a flooded Salar de Uyuni, reaching the summit of Aconcagua, and coming 3rd in the Cape Wrath Ultra despite nursing a sprained ankle.

In this episode, he chats to Will about some of the highlights from his travels, about his approach to planning adventures, and about changing your life for the sake of your mental wellbeing.
