Joshua Forester is an outdoor experience enthusiast with a background in distance running, yoga, backpacking, mountain biking, cycling, paddling, rock climbing, and most recently mountaineering.
While successfully summiting North America’s tallest peak, Denali, on a self-guided expedition is his latest accomplishment, new projects are just around the corner! His chief aims currently include competing in Eco-Challenge Fiji, trekking Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa, and setting a paddling speed record for a shoreline circumnavigation of Lake Lanier in his hometown of Atlanta, Georgia.
As a former adventure racing national champion, he has drawn from past experiences in the sport to contribute as an adventure and endurance sports writer for online and print publications as well as become an energetic advocate for the outdoors. He organizes events for multiple outdoors groups in the Southeastern United States, actively engaging a new generation of explorers to develop their own intrepid plans.
