Jerome Colson, Executive Assistance Manager for Food & Beverage at the AYANA Resort and Spa, Bali, is a hard man to keep up with. In addition to running one of the largest F&B operations in a 5-star resort in Bali, he also manages to find time to compete in “ultra marathon” events around the world to raise funds for worthy causes on the island of Bali.
Not for the meek of spirit or body, an “Ultra Marathon”
covers a grueling distance of 100 km. Jerome will be bound for Kota Kinabalu in Malaysia to run in the “The Most Beautiful Thing” (TMBT) Ultra Trail Marathon
held in the Crocker mountain range of Sabah. Traversing gravel roads, short pieces of pavement, hanging bridges and even fording Jungle Rivers – all forming part of a race that is divided into three divisions of 25 km, 50 km and 100 km.
The Sabah race on September 15, 2012 will be Jerome’s second 100 km ultra marathon race this year. The race run in an equatorial jungle will see runners deal with high temperatures and humidity and a racecourse that includes a positive ascent of 4,500 meters.
After a successful 2011 run enabled Jerome to support to work of his friends Serge and Inge Van Zon of Villa Flow
in Seraya Barat and their efforts to assist two grade schools serving 137 children in East Bali, the goal of the coming race is to raise US$3,000 to help renovate a building, fand urnish and provides books for a well-stocked school library in Seraya Barat.
