OUR TEAM

ERIC CHRISMAN, Owner | Founder | Designer

Eric discovered a way to marry his love for mountain ultra running and design. After completing his second 100 mile ultra trail race at San Diego 100 mile Endurance Run he found a need to display his hard earned buckle.

 

In 2015 he designed the first elevation profile buckle plaque that set the pace for an amazing journey. Soon after he had the idea to create wooden medals that were mountain inspired in design. Elevation Culture was born and now offers 100% handcrafted race awards and medals.

 

Eric lives in San Diego, California with his girlfriend Miranda where he finds inspiration in the mountains, coaching running, and seeking out the next big adventure.
