Alex Staniforth is a record-breaking endurance adventurer, motivational speaker, fundraiser and author from Cheshire aged 22.
In July 2017 he became the fastest person ever to climb all 100 UK county tops in 72 days. He has been on four expeditions to the Himalayas including two attempts to climb Mount Everest, which ended in the two biggest disasters in Everest history and surviving the 2015 Nepal earthquake whilst in the Khumbu Icefall.
Alex is no stranger to overcoming adversity, however – suffering epilepsy, stammering and bullying in earlier life. More recently, mental illness including depression and eating disorders have not stopped Alex achieving his potential.
Now Alex is committed to inspiring others to embrace their own obstacles as an opportunity to win. He has already shared his journey with thousands as a highly-regarded inspirational speaker, his book ICEFALL, and ambassador roles. Through challenges he has raised over £85,000 for charity to help others overcome their own Everest in life.
Life is there to be conquered.
