This week on the Outside & Active Podcast Dom welcomes Colin Jackson

Colin Jackson is a former British hurdler who is widely regarded as one of the greatest athletes in the history of track and field. Known for his incredible speed, agility, and technical prowess, Jackson dominated the world of hurdling during his career.

One of his most remarkable achievements was setting the world record for the 110-meter hurdles in 1993, with a time of 12.91 seconds, a record that stood for over a decade.

After retiring from competitive athletics in 2003, Jackson has continued to be involved in the world of sports as a commentator, pundit, and motivational speaker.

On this episode of the podcast we talk through Colin's illustrious career alongside an awesome event and charitable endeavor working alongside Redbull.

dryrobe® is the original outdoor changing robe - designed to help you get active outside, whatever the weather.

A bit like having your own portable changing room, the oversized design of the dryrobe® Advance gives you plenty of space to get changed in and out of a wetsuit, or sports kit, but is versatile enough to be worn as a coat or a jacket.
Made from 100% recycled fabrics, the waterproof and windproof outer protects you from the elements, whilst its super-warm inner lining helps you dry off quickly after getting out of the water.

What people really love about the dryrobe® Advance though is its versatility. It’s perfect for a huge range of outdoor activities, including surfing, wild swimming, triathlon, paddleboarding, mountain biking, camping and even walking your dog in torrential rain!
