Currently based in Iten, Kenya, Jake made the major decision in 2007, aged 17, to relocate from the Waikato to Kenya to immerse himself into the harsh world of training with many of the world’s best middle and long distance runners. The tough training and dedication has paid off with Jake dropping his 5000m time down by a minute since 2008 and has posted the 4th fasted 5000m time ever run by a Kiwi along with the 3rd fastest 10,000m. It has also led to him competing at two World Championships, finishing a creditable 15th in 2011 and 28th in 2013. Jake will be running at his first Commonwealth Games.
