Jason & Daniel

“ Two dads learning to be kids again”

As the primary navigator during races, Jason says he has a keen ability to remain calm and focused in the midst of race chaos. He is also the co-founder of Yogaslackers, an internationally renowned yoga instructor, AcroYoga teacher, environmentalist and former physicist. He has been featured by Yoga Journal, ESPN, MS-NBC, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Wend Magazine, Rock and Ice, The Bend Bulletin, Outside Magazine, and many more. When not racing through remote regions of the world, he enjoys training clients, hosting adventure races, and wrestling with his two wild boys.


“My wife and I just had a baby, and I just want to be able to sleep a few hours a night again.”

Known as “The Mule,” Dan is a particularly skilled bushwhacker, navigator, and analyst. He was drawn to adventure racing after being a student in Jason’s high school physics class. His favourite part of racing is the power of having a team with a common sense of purpose; and therefore, being able to move with a speed that each teammate could never maintain individually. When not racing, Dan can be found creating digital spaces solutions as a software architect and whipping up culinary delights for the team.
