Mountain Running

Surefooted and motivated, Campbell's passion lies in exploring the alpine, whether it’s running, skiing or climbing. Raised in Lagos, Nigeria's largest city, Campbell has always cherished his eclectic upbringing and the diverse world view it has given him. After narrowly missing the Olympics, Campbell was drawn into the mountains and found his love for long-distance trail running and SkiMo racing or as Campbell likes to say: 'suffering in beautiful places.' He has since podiumed at many prestigious races while securing another professional status as a lawyer, which he uses to protect the beautiful places he 'suffers' in.
