Jamie Ramsay

Ultra Runner and Land Rover Explore Ambassador - Jamie will be speaking on the main Basecamp stage for LAND ROVER EXPLORE

Born in Edinburgh, Schooled in Scotland, Oxford Brookes University and then 12 years at International communications consultancy. Adventure career started in August 2014 after quit career to follow a more passion fuelled life inspired by the great outdoors. I see myself as an Endurance Adventure Athlete and by that I mean I like to go long distances, in harsh or beautiful environments as effectively and efficiently as possible. When I conceive an idea I want it to cross into the realm where people question whether it is possible. I also want to be continually developing my skills and learning new adventure skills and interacting with other outdoor enthusiasts.
