Ep. 636: Mountaineer, Explorer, Guide, Race Director - Alex Harris

Powered by RedCircle


After resigning from his position in sales in 1996, Alex became the youngest South African to guide a team to the summit of Everest at the age of 25. Since then he has led dozens of expeditions to some of the furthest corners of the planet, including the north and south sides of Everest, the Seven Summits, and the Arabian Desert, to name a few.

In 2008, Alex became the first African to walk unsupported to the South pole. The journey took 65 days and covered 1,200 kms. 

Alex has now transitioned into the life of race director for The Munga, a 1,000 km semi-supported single stage mountain bike race across South Africa in the heat of the summer.
