Candid Conversations: Jo Lodder's Journey from Jockey to Trailblazer!

Updated: Nov 10, 2023

I'm thrilled to take you on my journey from being a professional jockey, boxer to a trailblazer on the Hong Kong trails, and my life took an epic turn after a life-altering fall from a horse.

Join me as I share my inspiring story with our fantastic JD podcast host, Andrew Cox, from Joint Dynamics. We'll dive deep into the highs and lows of my life, and how I'm using extreme adventures to raise funds for those in need. This isn't just about running; it's about changing lives through the incredible Run for Freedom Movement.

Fasten your seatbelts for an inspiring conversation packed with resilience, and compassion, and infused with the spirit of a true trailblazer.


"Jo Lodder and Novy are a dynamic duo, each with their own remarkable contributions to the world. Jo is a trail runner, business leader, and philanthropist, known for his trailblazing spirit. He is the co-founder of JNW Asia, a prominent property marketing company based in Hong Kong that specializes in Niseko projects. Jo is also a master agent of SnowDog, a renowned hospitality brand. However, what truly sets him apart is his unique achievement: being the first person in history to conquer the HK5Trails in Hong Kong while championing the 'Run for Freedom' challenge to raise funds for charity.

Novy, on the other hand, is a culinary virtuoso with a passion for traditional Indonesian cuisine. As a private chef, she runs Novy's Kitchen (, where she brings the authentic flavours of Indonesia to the world.
