Her racing resume is significant with an overall win at the 2019 Spine race, a fastest known time on the Bob Graham Round, a top-10 finish at 2016 UTMB, and way more. Most recently, she completed 3 laps, also known as a “Fun Run”, at the vaunted Barkley Marathons in Tennessee’s Frozen Head State Park.

The woman who ran for 83 hours: Jasmin Paris, Series 1 Episode 6

How to Be Superhuman

Fell runner Jasmin Paris made headlines when she became the first woman to win the gruelling 268-mile Montane Spine Race outright. Dubbed ‘Britain’s most brutal’ running event, it takes place in the depths of winter and sees competitors running the entire length of the Pennine Way – mostly in pitch black darkness.In this episode, Rob Pope chats to Jasmin about what it took to finish the race in 83h 12m 23s – 12 hours faster than anyone of either sex had before. From tactically deciding when – and how much – to sleep, to ensure she stayed ahead of the pack, to how, mentally, she coped with the very, long and difficult sections of this desperately lonely race.Still breastfeeding her 14-month-old daughter, Rowan, at the time, Jasmin also touches on the logistics of having to express breastmilk at the race's various checkpoints along the way but, describes how, despite the media attention this gained at the time, "it really wasn't such a big deal".Jasmin also provides her view on why women are more competitive with the men when it comes to ultra-distance running – but explains why she, personally, doesn't see herself as 'superhuman'.Listen to all episodes and discover more about How to Be Superhuman at http://redbull.com/superhuman

Everything Endurance

Jasmin Paris was already a national fell-running champion, winner of the Skyrunner world series and a record holder on the Bob Graham and Ramsey Rounds when she crossed the line of the 2019 Spine Race in first position. In that moment she was propelled into the public consciousness, having been the first woman to take the overall win in that immensely tough race, but also having smashed the course record by over twelve hours.  We recently chatted to Jasmin about her journey into running, her experience on The Spine Race and the media aftermath of very suddenly being the most famous utra-runner on the planet.

Endurance: Jasmin Paris

Don’t Tell Me The Score

Endurance is defined as the ability to endure an unpleasant or difficult process or situation without giving way. Keeping on going, when the going gets tough basically. This week on DTMTS, Simon Mundie sits down with British ultrarunner Jasmin Paris to discuss endurance. Jasmin won the 268 mile Spine race, widely regarded as one of the toughest endurance races in the world and described as the ultimate challenge of physical resilience and mental fortitude. Jasmin became not only the first woman to win the race outright, she also smashed the men’s course record by a staggering 12 hours. As if that wasn't remarkable enough, she posted her record time whilst also expressing milk for her 14 month old daughter Rowan. It was a truly astonighing feat in what is Britain’s most brutal running race. Jasmin juggles her running with raising a young daughter as well as being a vet, so she has mastered the art of prioritising what is important in life. She is a great believer in balance in life however, so cake and wine are never entirely shunned. Jasmin also emphasises the importance of chunking big projects down into manageable bite size chunks, loving what you do and following your instincts and intuition. Jasmin also hopes her example will inspire women everywhere to believe anything is possible.
