In addition to competing in numerous Ironman and Ultraman events, he also organized and completed the EPIC 5 in 2010, an Ironman distance event on each of the five main Hawaiian islands over the course of a week.
The run will finish at the Coconut Grove Marketplace where Jason will be also be holding a book signing. The event will also feature prizes, giveaways, post-race refreshments and a live DJ. All participants will be entered into a drawing for a free Zoot Fuzion Wetsuit, running shoes and a copy of "Running on Faith."
