Jup Brown is from Wanaka, New Zealand, however has been traveling the world for the past 20 years. In 2010, Jup put on his running shoes and tried Ultra running. After 2 ultras, Jup planned to return to New Zealand and run the length of the country (2937kms- 67 days on the road, 60 days of running, 50kms a day). During this run he helped raise awareness for the NZ Stroke foundation. In 2012, he did the same in Japan (4259kms- 82 out of 97 days on the road) raising money for the Tsunami affected areas.
2015 he went out again to run across the United States. On January 16 starting at Huntington Beach California and finishing in Boston . Jup and his mate Pat ran 100 out of 114 days on the road covering 3400 miles raising awareness and funds for the 100 Mile Club kids program. “ I love the challenge but more so love meeting the people on the road and traveling new places & countries, I would love to meet you out on the road”
The day Jup was finishing he got a call from a mate saying “Hurry up and finish so we can run back” , he thought to himself that he’d had enough running and decided he would ride a bicycle back from Boston but go via the width of Canada on the way back to Los Angles. He spent 120 days out there cycling 8200 miles and although his first time on a bike doing something like this he said he had a amazing time and it was a bit easier than running. “A whole new world towards Adventures just opened up and I’m excited for whats next”
Jup’s now researching and planning more fun adventures and is looking forward to sharing them with you soon.
Dream more,Smiling, Self belief and helping others is what it is all about !!
"I’m out on the road running for hours on my events and keeping my feet in good condition and quick recovery is huge. I love the feel and softness of Point6 Socks. They don't slip down in my shoes and are both cool and warm which helps as I hit a lot of different weather conditions on the roads."
