Get on your bike and Climb with the Everesting Challenge Holiday Edition by Planet Ultra
Your mission, should you choose to accept it: Get on your bike and climb 29,029 feet.
It's simple. Between Thanksgiving on November 25th and Christmas Day on December 25th, rack up 29,029 feet (8,848 metres) of accumulated elevation to reach the top of Mt. Everest!
“Everesting” has become part of the global cycling vernacular. It’s a fairly simple concept, yet brutally challenging: Pick any hill, anywhere in the world, and climb it repeatedly, until you reach the height of Mt. Everest at 29,029′.
The pros have been at it for years. The current record is 6h 40m 54s, held by Ronan McLaughlin. That’s just INSANE.
How about a challenge for us mere mortals?
You have 29 days to climb 29,029′. You can do a non-stop sufferfest; a quad-busting weekend; or take your time and smell the wildflowers.
Achieve the summit to win a stylish, high quality jersey which includes Tibetan prayer flags: Blue for sky, white for air, red for fire, green for water and yellow for earth. Traditionally, prayer flags are used to promote peace, compassion, strength, and wisdom. Tibetans believe the prayers and mantras are blown by the wind to spread good will and compassion into all-pervading space. A perfect sentiment for the coming holiday season!
Along the way you'll earn milestone badges that you can share on social media or print and save. Achieve a double or triple summit to earn your way into our Everesting Hall of Fame.
For the most elite cyclists, "Everesting" has become part of the global cycling vernacular. It's a fairly simple concept, yet brutally challenging: Pick any hill, anywhere in the world, and climb it repeatedly until you reach the height of Mt. Everest. We make it more fun and more achievable! Choose any or all of your favorite climbs and take a month to reach the summit.
