  • Stuart Erskine has always pushed himself to do extraordinary things, taking athletic challenges to the extreme. Stuart’s first exploits were as a long distance runner first completing world renowned races such as the Boston and New York Marathons. Not satisfied with those accomplishments, he moved on to compete in adventure races such as Canada’s 125 kilometre Death Race in the Rocky Mountains, and finishing one of the world’s most challenging adventure races, the Marathon Des Sables in Morocco, three times.

    After a serious injury however, Stuart traded in his running shoes for climbing gear. After completing a mountaineering course, Stuart set his sights on summiting the tallest peaks on each of the seven continents, an achievement known as the Seven Summits Challenge. Stuart topped Australia’s Mount Kosciusko in October 2013 before moving on to Africa’s famed Mount Kilimanjaro in the summer of 2014. In 2015, Stuart reached the highest points in Europe and South America, as well as North America’s Mount Denali in Alaska. In 2016, Stuart topped the final 2 peaks, Mount Vinson in Antarctica, and finally, Mount Everest in Asia, the highest point on earth, in May 2016.

    Stuart Erksine is only the 12th Canadian to meet the Seven Summits Challenge, standing on the highest points on each of the 7 continents.
