The North Face, the world’s premier supplier of authentic, innovative, and technically advanced outdoor apparel, equipment and footwear, today announced that Mark Synnott will come to Birmingham, Al., as part of the 2013 Never Stop Exploring Speaker Series. The live nationwide tour invites adventure fans from across the country to share in the incredible tales of 14 top athletes from The North Face Team.
Mark Synnott will recount his life’s mission - to seek out and climb the world’s most remote cliffs – to Birmingham residents on November 14th. In Off the Map, presented by The North Face and Mountain High Outfitters, Mark, a skilled raconteur known for exploring the most seldom-seen places, will temper his tales of high adrenaline with droll humor. Featuring breathtaking images, the evening will be a celebration of adventure.
Mark’s quest has taken him to some of the far corners of the earth - to the Arctic, the Karakoram, the Ennedi desert, and Amazonian jungles. He most recently led an expedition, partnered with National Geographic and The North Face, exploring the Musandam Peninsula in Oman via sailboat.
The presentation will take place at Avondale Brewing Company at 201 41st St S, Birmingham, AL 35222, beginning at 7:00 p.m.
