Al Jefferson is an experienced multi-sport athlete who discovered a passion for RAAM after playing a strategic support crew role in the Team Australia 2015 campaign and as a Team Australia Rider in 2017. Hew has a reputation in the triathlon community as a fierce competitor and with good reason. His list of ironman races is endless, qualifying and competing in the Ironman World Championships at Kona 8 times. He is a three-time finisher in the prestigious Kathmandu Coast to Coast which is New Zealand’s most iconic Multi Sport event. The most recent event was 2024
Allan last competed in RAAM in 2022 where he was the overall winner in 9 days, 23 hours and 20 minutes to secure 1st Overall, 1st Male, 1st Age Group (50 – 59) as well as the fastest finisher representing Emergency Services. Allan was also the first rider in the races 40-year history to win overall from the 50 – 59 age category.

The Cause



Allan is raising funds to promote good mental health for emergency and frontline workers with all contributions going to Selectability, a not-for-profit organisation committed to improving mental wellbeing and preventing suicide. Selectability runs Bike Sheds where people can connect, work on projects, join in group bike rides and improve their mental wellbeing in Townsville, Ingham, Charters Towers and Mackay, with more coming soon. 

Team Jefferson will have 11 dedicated team members and will be joined by hundreds of other riders and support crews in 2024. The Race starts off from Oceanside, California and ends some 5000 km’s later at Atlantic City, New Jersey.



RAAM is an outstanding platform for raising money for charitable causes.

Having over 10 years’ experience as a Rescue Crew Officer with QGAir Helicopter Rescue, I have seen first hand how the effects that the challenging environment emergency services workers face can be an underlying cause for PTSD, depression, anxiety and suicide.

Emergency Services, Health workers and volunteers are always there for the community; so I am asking for your help in raising funds to promote the awareness of the benefits of Good Mental Health because I think it’s important that we all join together to help take care of our Frontline Emergency Service workers.
