This year, Origin Legal Director Jason Nottage has undertaken a fitness journey of epic proportions. Having already contributed miles-worth of swimming, kayaking, cycling and running to our Road to Moscow fundraiser for the Fatboys Charity, Jason recently reached a milestone in the London Classics challenge, collecting his second of three medals.

The London Classics is a three-part challenge consisting of the Prudential Ride London-Surrey 100-mile cycle, the iconic London Marathon – which Jason conquered in 2002 – and a 2-mile swimming event in the Serpentine Lake in London’s Hyde Park – which Jason completed on Saturday 22nd September. Despite very cold, wet weather conditions, Jason achieved an impressive time of 1 hour 6 minutes for the open water swim, landing him in 499th place out of 6083 participants. I’m sure we can all agree that is a cracking result!

As one of the main driving forces behind Origin and an ever-positive influence within the office, Jason has the full support of the whole team as he balances his sporting efforts with heading up the Origin’s Midlands team. Other Origin Legal staff have also been inspired to up their fitness game, joining Jason in raising heart-rates, funds and awareness for a wealth of excellent charities this year – including the London to Brighton bike ride for British Heart Foundation in June 2018.

So, what’s next?

Jason already has 2020 in his sights for defeating the final, cycling element of the London Classics challenge and claiming his final medal. Keep an eye out on our news page for other iconic athletic feats the Origin Team will be attempting in the meantime.
