Jason Lester partners with Mission_&_Mantra to launch the Limited Edition “The GREAT WALL” bracelet
On May 8th, 2014 ESPY Award Winner, Author and Ultra Endurance Athlete, Jason Lester accomplished a mission no one in the world has completed in the past 2,000 years. Lester, owner and founder of EP1C, inc. (EPIC5), humanitarian and fundraiser, ran 2,600 miles along The Great Wall of China – solo in a single attempt – in 83 days.
This mission was used as a platform to bring awareness and support to help fight malnutrition in kids.
Mission accomplished: Jason’s successful crossing supplied 50,000 kids nutrition supplements for one year.
The ”The Great Wall” Bracelet: “I’ve always worn prayer bracelets on my mission. From running across the United States, biking 5,000 miles across America and my recent challenge, running the length of The Great Wall. My bracelets have always been gifts from others as a source of protection and inspiration. It wasn’t untill one of my Chinese crew members gave me a prayer bracelet (see photos) on Day 25 as a token of good energy to stay on my Mission and to remind me of the Mantra I live. I thought to myself, prayer bracelets have always given me good energy, i’d like to share it with others so they too can be inspired.”
Jason has hand selected quality stones, authentic sandalwood from various regions of China and lava rock representing Hawaii, Jason’s training grounds. The hand made “The GREAT WALL” bracelet is housed with 3, 5 and 8 beads. The numbers have meaning to Jason.
83 = The amount of days it took Jason to complete his 2,600 mile mission along The Great Wall.
5 = Jason’s 5 Mantra’s | Wellness + Health + Love + Inspiration + Give
Over the next 30 days the team at Mission_&_Mantra will be selecting pillars in your community and gifting them with the “The GREAT WALL” bracelet as a source of inspiration to share their Mission and Mantra to others.

You will not achieve #Greatness by taking the easy route in life.
January 19, 2015
There is no book, manual, class or similar that will teach you more in life then taking – The Road Less Traveled. If you want to release the beast within you are going to have to suffer – and suffering is the one thing people dislike the most. When you are challenged beyond belief your body and mind grows to elements that will not return to its original state. When you continously go Next Level you are stretching your mental capability to elements that allow you to supersede it’s previous stage.
STOP playing around with weak sauce. Every single CHAMP1ON in this world completely annihilated their body and mind in training so that when it became game time – it is the Victory lap.
STOP saying you “Can’t” and start saying “I Will”. People flip cars, swim across islands, run across countries, are undefeated – have never lost a race! … Yes You Can.
((( It is all in your head )))
You don’t have it because you don’t really want it. You dream about wanting it – but you won’t put in the work to win that dream. You’ve let others doubt you, fear paralyze you, told you are to young to old too fat too skinny you’re not experienced enough …
Be your own hero.
Be your own cheerleader.
Be your own inspiration.
It’s your journey your life your mission your DREAMS others will not understand your drive. Your addiction. Your hustle. Your desire for greatness and guess what?
It’s You vs- You. You are your biggest fan and your biggest weakness. Put together a plan and DOMINATE it. Crush it, smash it, look at that plan like it’s trying to kill you and completely annihilated it.
And that’s when you will find your true Greatness. – jpl
DO. NOT. STOP. #NEVERSTOP
An EP1C Christmas – HAPUNA100 Endurance Run
December 27, 2014
Christmas eve my buddy Caleb Says “Jason I’ve attempted to run 100 miles on Hapuna Beach 19x in the past 3yrs. My best is 67 miles. I either don’t have the right nutrition, right team to support me or mother nature took its toll. Everyone I tell my dream is to run 100 miles on the most amazing beach – either calls me crazy, I’m over doing myself or I should try something a bit easier for my first 100″
Me: Grab your gear and supplies and meet me at the lab. 1pm we had HAPUNA100 hats made. 2pm stocked the ice chest with ALL plant based food. 3pm reached Hapuna. 4pm we started on what would be one of the most epic 30hrs of my running career. 100 miles in the sand, 30hrs non stop with thousands on the beach cheering us on. Caleb has finally conquered his first 100 miler. With his 13 yr old son, Caleb jr. as our crew chief we ran through the night under the stars with waves crashing just feet away ALL to celebrate the birth of Christ.
NEVER STOP going after your dreams. It takes one person to believe in you and sometimes that one person is – You.
HAPUNA100 in the record books.
Ultra-endurance athlete Jason Lester ran 72 hours and 216 miles non-stop (no sleep ) to support Christmas for kids “CHA11ENGE Endurance Run”
December 16, 2014
Instead of a mad dash for the latest holiday sale, one Kona man challenged to himself and others to run for a good cause: to bring every keiki in need a gift for Christmas through The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program. Endurance athlete and 2009 ESPY Award Winner Jason P. Lester ran for 72 hours straight to raise awareness for children in need in his community and raise money to buy them gifts for Christmas.
Lester shares his reason for running to give back to kids in Kona, he is inspired to run in honor of his dear friend Kaleo Opiopio, who lost his fight to cancer.
The Great Wall Run reaches Washington, DC
November 8, 2014
Last night was a very special moment for The Great Wall Run.
My partner MET-RX put on an amazing celebration ceremony here in Beijing and coordinated a special guest to honor myself and my team. Judith Heumann Special Advisor for International Disability Rights and Daniel Delk Embassy of the United States flew in from Washington DC for APEC and surprised our guest.
In my heart I knew the Great Wall Run would be used as a platform to not only inspire China – but inspire the world that we must break down barriers. That every single person in this world deserves equal opportunity despite their challenges, living conditions or current situation. Every kid MUST have equal rights for an education. Every Veteran MUST have equal rights on care.
And the facts are – they are not. And there are countries that shy away, hide and disregard these amazing souls as if they are non existent.
I will dedicate myself and my platform to aid in making a difference in this unfortunate not acceptable truth.
Jason Lester from Kailua-Kona, Hawaii sets a World Record by becoming the first person to run The Great Wall of China
October 31, 2014
Los Angeles, CA October 31, 2014 – Jason Lester from Kailua-Kona, Hawaii sets a World Record by becoming the first person to run The Great Wall of China (Jiayuguan first dun to Shanhaiguan Old Dragon Head) Solo in a single attempt.
Lester, an Adventurer, ESPN’s ESPY Winner, Author of Running on Faith and the Founder of the EP1C, Inc., brand that houses such groundbreaking endurance events such as the EPIC5 Challenge. He is the founder and chairman of The NEVER STOP Foundation, and has biked 5,000 miles in 100 days across the United States as the face of the Nike Better World brand and campaign. Lester, who recently ran 3,550 miles in 72 days across the USA to raise funds and awareness for Hurricane Sandy has a passion for using his athletic gifts to inspire others to Never Stop.
Asked why The Great Wall. “The Great Wall of China is the most monumental structure build by mankind. My desire and ambition was and still is to honor and pay respect to China, it’s culture and those whom built the wall over 2000 years ago. My wish and hope is that this run has inspired many around the world and that they to would have an interest and appreciation for The Great Wall. This run was a team effort and I’m grateful and humbled by all that made this dream come true. To my team that assisted in making history – you are heroes.” When asked what was the most surprising and unexpected moment of this journey, Lester responded with; ”I’ve learned in 83 Days that this world functions off love and inspiration. I ran through hundreds of villages that the local people had never seen a foreigner before. At first they ran from me scared but as I reached out to shake their hand with a smile they wanted to learn more about me and why I was on their turf. Within minutes they would start to smile and then invite me into their homes for tea and food. I touched thousands of babies and our youth along this journey as I feel our youth are our future and hope. I spent many hours a day making sure I left a footprint so that those kids got to see that no matter what our circumstances we all have the ability to dream big and live those dreams. If you look at the over 10,000 photos we captured you will see this was not about Jason Lester. This wasn’t about being the first or any world record – this was about using my athletic gifts as a platform to Inspire others that this amazing journey we call life can be monumental. Running isn’t my purpose it’s my platform. I would run around the world in a blink of an eye if I knew it would allow others to Be Better for a Better World – and I’ve surrendered to doing just that. It’s my calling and I’m humbled and blessed to be called to such a role. I want to thank each and every one of my partners for believing in my mission to inspire 1.4 billion people in China. To all my friends, family and supporters – with a humbled heart and inspired spirit – thank you for answering the call to support.”
Lester partnered with a select number of companies that are in-sync with his beliefs and core values for the MI88ION: BE BETTER
The BE BETTER campaign would not have been possible without the strong collaboration of these partners. This collaboration allowed partners to join together as a unified platform to educate, support and BE BETTER. “All of us together have a mission to BE BETTER and if we are better, then we are making the world better”.
Each partner contributed valuable resources, time, and energy. They also made substantial financial contributions, as well as contributing product and services that were not only crucial to getting the team to the starting line on 8.8 at 8 A.M. but getting to the finish line 83 world record days later.
The mi88ion titled sponsor: “M5M” represents The Mission 5 Million movement and Mannatech’s mission to link five million consumers of its glyconutrient, food-based nutritional supplements with five million children in need. Lester is an ambassador for Mannatech.
