What are the ways I can choose to do the challenge?

You can select whether you want to Run, Hike/Walk, Cycle, or Tri (all three).  Whatever you select will indicate the results board that you will show up on. 

*Please note that 'Teams' must have all team members registered under the same category, in order for elevation to accumulate towards the collective team tally.*

Is this a race?

This is a "challenge" and NOT a race. We hope everyone has fun and cheers each other on.   

But we are okay with a little friendly competition for those who want some extra motivation at the personal or team levels.  

We are also working on a couple of other fun things that we hope to get into 2022; otherwise, we will target 2023 for these additions.

Can I bring a team?

Absolutely!  Team captains who rally Ten (10) or more participants will receive a FULL REFUND of their personal registration. These Captains will be eligible for Team Captain's Perks. Challenge your team to hit their individual elevation goals, and monitor your team's progress against other teams from around the country!

*Please note that 'Teams' must have all team members registered under the same category, in order for elevation to accumulate towards the collective team tally.*

What if I don’t have a team, can I join a team?

New for 2022 is the opportunity to join a virtual team.  Each virtual team will be managed by a volunteer Captain.   The team will have a private Facebook group that will allow virtual team members to interact and cheer each other on.   Have fun with others around the country!

Yes! The Climb Everest Finisher Medal is a high-quality stainless steel design, unique for 2022.  This medal comes with your registration and SWAG package!
