Leadville Highlights Bermudian Jason Williams

February 19, 2022

The Leadville Race Series has featured Bermudian Jason Williams as ‘Leadville Legendary,’ with their interview with Mr. Williams focusing on his home in Bermuda and his path to becoming a competitive runner and taking part in the LT100 Run in 2021.

The Leadville Race Series website said, “The path to becoming Leadville Legendary looks different for everyone. For Jason Williams, a firefighter from Bermuda, it meant training on a 21-square mile island, running to and from work each day and spending countless hours on the treadmill.”


Mr. Williams said, “I’m Jason Williams, a 37-year-old Bermudian. I’m married [Karen Williams] and have 3 children [Aerial, Journey, Promise Williams]. I work as a full-time firefighter.

“Bermuda is a tiny, fish hook shaped island in the Atlantic Ocean full of beautiful beaches and warm weather. The island is only about 21 square miles. Although we are small, our city is quite robust, housing many major insurance company’s headquarters. A third of our approximately 65,000 person population are foreign workers, many of whom work within the city, making it a pretty busy place that has every first world amenity you can think of, and we have one of the highest, if not the highest, cost of living in the world.

“I mostly ran on pavement, but we do have beaches and one short 3 mile trail. My longest run was a 50 miler. I set up a 5-mile loop with my car as an aid station and ran 10 laps. I wanted to prepare for night running, so I started at 10 PM and finished at 9 AM.”
