Jacob Ort has been running his whole life from his first frantic ADD driven run from Mom and Dad to his first organized 5k in 5th grade. Jacob grew up running with my Father who was in the military and ran local 5ks and cross country in high school.
Eventually Jacob progressed in to road marathons posting 6 consecutive sub 3:00 hour marathons including his first marathon despite getting lost at mile 24. For the past 5 years Jacob has been running ultra marathons in distances from 100 miles to 50km both road and trail racing.
Jacob has been dedicated to a vegan straight life style for over 12 years and he finds that ultra running is a perfect vehicle for promoting his vegan lifestyle and the issue of living cruelty-free.
When not running Jacob spends time with his wife and young child and likes to read books and be a fan boy for all things Canadian.
