Have you ever wanted to climb Mount Everest? Reach 8,848m above sea level, the highest point on Earth, at an altitude where humans are not designed to survive and where aeroplanes cruise? That sounds very dangerous (and expensive) to us, plus we really don’t like the success or mortality rates of those who try…
But we have a solution – a new challenge for 2018. Can you climb the equivalent of Mount Everest? In this annual challenge, seek out those hills and if you can clock up an impressive 8,848m of elevation gain before the end of the year, this medal can be yours!
For this challenge you will need to use a running app or system which tracks elevation e.g. Strava, Garmin Connect, Run Keeper etc
The Everest Challenge can be entered now – medals will be sent out from June 2018 onwards, once completed elevation details are uploaded.
