About Us

The Jude Morris Racing Foundation
The Jude Morris Racing Foundation aims to help, develop and coach aspiring athletes through physical and mental performance guidance. It ensures their physical and mental wellbeing for their chosen sport is at the highest level to improve performance, reduce injury and to ensure they can perform.

The Jude Morris Racing Foundation

The Jude Morris Racing Foundation was set up by the Morris family in conjunction with a group of trustees, to help provide a platform for aspiring riders. It aims to develop them, support them and bring an improved level of professionalism into youth Motocross with a view to developing a more professional level of rider and therefore raise the level of the sport, and help the sport become a serious sporting choice.

Jude Morris had really begun to come into his own in 2021 – he was professional, hardworking, dedicated and a very caring young man. If we can develop two riders each year in the ethos of Jude, we will have hit our goals.

Trustees

The Jude Morris Racing Foundation CIC has a trustee board of seven people. They meet regularly to discuss the Foundation and how best to take it forward. They look at ways to raise funds, to keep the profile of Jude active and to ensure that they keep to the Foundation’s core values of developing the next generation of off-road racers. All our trustees are non-paid and volunteer their time for free. Many are ex-racers and have an extensive background in racing.

Ambassadors

We are delighted to be supported by a number of the best UK Riders who have lent their support to The Jude Morris Racing Foundation.

Adam Sterry

“I think the Jude Morris foundation is a great idea, to be able to give back to the sport and help develop and support the next group of talented youth riders coming through, this really shows the passion and care Mark and his family and the foundation have for the sport”

Bobby Bruce

“As a close friend of Jude's, I think the Jude Morris Racing Foundation is amazing. He put so much effort into his racing and I know how much he wanted it so it will be a brilliant way to help the up and coming generation, with the same goals that Jude had, to develop in racing”

Ben Watson

“For me, it’s a great idea to bring new talent in and give them the support that they deserve to try and end up in the situation that I’m in, racing in the World Championship, even to bring and develop young kids into the British level and get them on that ladder.”

Lucy Barker

“I am over the moon to be asked by the JMR Foundation to be an ambassador. It is a real honour to be a part of this team. Everything that JMR stands for is what I believe motocross should be about so I will do my best to ensure these values are always upheld.”
