Profile of Local Adventurer Paul Erskine


11 day – 1,000km – 1 cause

Local adventurer, entrepreneur, and humanitarian, Paul Erskine, is currently in training to ride 1,000 km across Mongolia on horseback for 11 days in August.


The Mongol Derby is the longest horse race in the world, consisting of riding semi-wild Mongolian horses through the remote wilderness of Asia, and Paul’s doing it to raise money for the orphaned and abandoned children of Fairhavens Babies Home in KwaZulu-Natal.

Paul has always had a passion for extreme adventure. To date he has crossed the North Pole on a sled pulled by huskies, visited five of the seven wonders of the world,climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, travelled to 72 countries, and dived all over the world. And he still has a lot to tick off on his Bucket List.

The hostile Mongolian landscape will be Paul’s hardest challenge to date though, twenty riders testing their physical and mental mettle against the hardiest opponent, nature itself.

From the 6th of August, Paul will race semi-wild horses borne of the same bloodline as these ancient steeds, while self-navigating his way across 1,000 km of Mongolia’s rugged steppe region only stopping to change horses every 40km.

By the end of the Mongol Derby, Paul will be one of a small handful of people in the entire world who can say they have ridden in the footsteps of Genghis Khan.

To find out more about Paul and his ultimate race to make a difference visit www.paulerskine.co.za
