Columbia searched through thousands of candidates to find two people who embody toughness. They had to be mentally tough, physically tested, and great storytellers. But more than anything, they had to be up for an unknown adventure. And we’ve found the perfect people to do just that. Let us introduce you to Columbia’s Directors of Toughness, Faith Briggs and Mark Chase.Learn more >
Faith Briggs is an avid runner and documentary film maker from Brooklyn, New York. She’s passionate about sharing contemporary stories from diverse communities and can always be found with her camera, whether in the photographer’s pit during New York’s fashion week or in the cloud forests in Honduras. Outside of the edit room, Faith can be found running trails upstate or sprinting down 5th Avenue. She’s a fixture in the urban running community and a member of Black Roses NYC. She lives by the motto #goodvibesonly and loves to show that women and girls, quite literally, run the world.Learn More >
Mark Chase is the first international Director of Toughness and joins the company from Gloucester, England. Raised on a diet of climbing, skiing, camping, hiking and rugby, it was obvious that a warm office and a cozy bed was never going to cut it. An ex Semi-professional Rugby player, Mark is used to pushing himself both mentally and physically and is always up for a challenge. After retiring from rugby Mark headed for the mountains. It was here that he discovered a desire for adventure. Now working, playing and often living in the outdoors. Mark is constantly pushing the limits to feed his natural curiosity, and was described recently as an adrenaline junkie with a camera.Learn More >
