The Pack / Jake Thompsett

Jake Thompsett - A Merrell Pack Leader

The Outdoors is in Jake Thompsett’s blood. He has been participating in outdoor sports and activities ever since he can remember. Starting out in sailing, by 17 he was a highly accomplished fell runner, climber and mountaineer. Happy doing anything outdoors, Jake is now an expert in ice and rock climbing, kayaking, surfing and of course, fell running!

Working as an outdoor instructor and expedition leader based in South Wales, he has successfully lead expeditions to the jungles and mountains of Borneo, India, Iceland and Malaysia, Thailand and Laos. He was also competing in several mountain marathons and adventure races, such as the OMM, Questars and Open 5 series.

Jake also founded JT Expeditions, an organisation which trains adults in the skills required to get out into the mountains and show them that they can achieve much greater than they believe and to constantly push the boundaries. It is very difficult to really experience the challenges, enjoyment and exhilaration of the outdoors if you don’t have skills necessary to get out in the first place. That’s where JT Expeditions step in and opens up that gateway for people. JT expeditions currently provide training and guiding in activities such as trail running, rock climbing, hill walking, adventure racing and mountain marathons.
