Meet Jason West - pro triathlete

Jason has been a professional triathlete since 2013. He grew up about an hour outside of Philadelphia. He attended university at Penn State and graduated with a degree in Kinesiology in 2015. Jason raced on the triathlon team all four years and won the National championship his senior year. Upon graduating, he moved to Boulder, CO to pursue a career as a full-time triathlete. 

Jason returns to VARLO for a second year after a scorching 2022 season, notching wins at the Ironman 70.3 Chattanooga North American Championship and Ironman 70.3 Augusta, and representing Team USA at the Professional Triathletes Organisation Collins Cup.  Finishing Augusta with a blistering 1:09:08 half marathon split, West lived up to the legendary Dave Scott’s depiction as a “ferocious runner” who “always closes his races with legs filled with venom.”
