Rob Jarman – Car explosions, Voodoo Challenge and the Frostbite 30

Sorry for being absent for a few months, I’ve been flat out! Lots of stunt work, biking and running.

I was involved in the recent Eastenders car explosion where we crashed a Jag into a shop which then exploded. It was great fun!

The new Berghaus TV advert seems to have been a massive hit, I saw it at the cinema before the new Bond film, if you haven’t seen it you can watch it here:

Al Lee’s Autana film has been a major success too, best of luck to them in Antarctica over Xmas and New Year. Its cold enough for me in Pateley Bridge!

I have also been out shooting with MBUK magazines completing the ‘voodoo challenge’ features. This is the latest one from Ireland. We have just shot one in Fort William which should be online soon and in the next magazine.

I have also been busy training hard to build up my ultra running distance. I organised a race in Pateley Bridge on the 1st of December called the Frostbite 30. 30 miles of ice and hardcore trail. The 60 runners that turned up seemed to enjoy it, especially the homemade cakes and pork pies afterwards.

It was an awesome day with great people and friends. Great to see the likes of Jon Steele from the Hardmoors events www.hardmoors110.org.uk and Vicci Mousley from www.9bar.com.

Congrats to the finishers and the top three in each class and a special mention to my brother Tim and Vikki for winning the team category!

Fingers crossed for a few months off now so I can crack on with some training and get some plans nailed down for biking events and expeditions for next year.
