Adam Campbell likes to “suffer in beautiful places” and loves exploring his backyard and challenging himself on foot, skis and on rock. He was raised on the beaches of Lagos, Nigeria to Canadian parents, but now calls the Canadian Rockies home. He has competed in, and regularly place on the podium at, some of the world’s most challenging and competitive mountain running races and trail ultramarathons. This includes podium finishes at the Ultra Trail Mount Fuji, Hardrock 100, UTMB, Squamish 50 and the Canadian mountain running championships. Adam is also a member of Canada’s ski mountaineering team and has the Fastest Known Time on many Canadian mountains and trails.
Adam is happiest exploring mountain terrain on foot, rope and skis and sharing those moments with close friends. When not running around the mountains, he’s an environmental and business lawyer. He is also a co-owner of Canada’s largest trail running series and is a vocal advocate for getting people, especially kids, to reconnect with nature and explore their own backyards, parks and neighbourhoods through human powered movement. These days Adam is most inspired by “alpinrunning” – taking his fitness and love of human powered movement and combining them with technical mountain skills to approach the mountains in a light and fast way.
