• Mark Chase

Welcome...

Thanks for checking out my blog. My name is Mark Chase and over the next nine months I will be travelling the world as one of two Columbia sportswear, Directors of Toughness. Testing Columbia products as well as both my mental and physical capabilities in some of the planets most extreme environments.

The nature of the job means that more often than not I won’t know where in the world I am going, how or what I am going to be testing until I actually arrive. Living out of a backpack for the next nine months from hotel to bivouac. Yesterday London, today Portland, Oregon and tomorrow… who knows?

I hope you’ll join me on this adventure and follow the regular posts to all my social media channels. You can also follow my journey (often live) on the Columbia Sportswear website and social media channels which are all linked below.
