dryrobe Ambassador - 4x OCR World Champion Jonathan Albon
We’re proud to announce that we’re renewing our relationship with Jonathan Albon as a brand ambassador. Now 4x OCR World Champion, he headlines an exciting and downright awesome pool of talent within the dryrobe team and we’re looking forward to supporting him as he embarks on a packed schedule of top quality events during 2018 and beyond.
Jon has been using dryrobes since 2013 and since then his racing career has hit some incredible heights, both in term of his accomplishments and in the literal sense. As well as remaining unbeaten in every event he has entered in the Toughest race series plus conquering the OCR world for 4 years in a row, Jon has also turned his attention to the awe-inspiring world of Skyrunning - a sport which is defined as races taking place at over 2,000m altitude over extremely technical trails. Taking the title of Extreme Skyrunning World Champion for the past two years, 2017 also saw Jon crowned as the Overall Skyrunning World Champion.

Now based in Bergen, Norway where he lives and trains with wife Henriette, Jon is looking forward to another exciting year ahead. With a packed calendar of racing with highlights including the Skyrunning World Championships at Glen Coe, Scotland and the Trail Running World Championships in Spain, Jon will also be returning home to the UK to defend his title on home turf at the OCR World Championships, hosted at Nuclear Races in October.
Jon commented: “Considering the adverse weather and more extreme natural elements in UK obstacle races...I am excited to see how our North American friends cope at the OCR World Championships and see how many will be taking newly purchased dryrobes back on the plane with them!”
Here at dryrobe we’re proud to be working with Jon and helping him to achieve his goals - his appetite for adventure and drive to push his limits constantly inspires the OCR community, something very important to us and we’re glad to be a part of.
Speaking about the announcement, Jon said: “I am once again excited to be working with dryrobe in 2018. If you don’t get warm and changed immediately after a race it can impact your short and long term recovery massively. A dryrobe is my number one tool to ensure this happens as quickly and efficiently as possible.”
Gideon Bright, Founder and Director of dryrobe added: ““We’ve enjoyed a highly valued relationship with Jon over the years and are delighted to be continuing to work with him in 2018. His achievements in the world of OCR and Skyrunning are unbelievable and we’re proud to continue supporting him”
