Darren Edwards Biography

A soldier and avid mountaineer, Darren Edwards survived a devastating, life-changing climbing accident that very nearly claimed his life and left him permanently paralyzed from the chest down. The accident and resulting Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) could so easily have destroyed his spirit, but instead, he used it as a catalyst for growth. Edwards’s story is a living testament to the boundless capabilities of the human spirit to endure and overcome adversity.

Now, he is a record-breaking Disabled Adventurer and Inspirational Speaker who has redefined the limits of what is thought possible for an individual with a Spinal Cord Injury. From becoming the first person with a disability to run seven marathons in seven days across seven continents in a wheelchair, to kayaking the length of Great Britain whilst leading a team of injured veterans, and then his ground-breaking expedition to sit-ski across Antarctica to the South Pole, Edwards’s incredible story of overcoming adversity, adapting to change, and building a robust mindset is guaranteed to motivate, encourage change, and inspire.
