Get on your bike and CLIMB with the Everesting Challenge this April!

Your mission, should you choose to accept it: Get on your bike and climb 29,032 feet between April 1st and April 29th!

Your mission, should you choose to accept it: Get on your bike and CLIMB!

It's simple: Between April 1st and April 29th 2023, rack up 29,032' of accumulated elevation to reach the top of Mt. Everest. Pick any hill, anywhere in the world, and climb it repeatedly!

The pros have been at it for years. The current record is 6:40:54, held by Ronan McLaughlin. That’s just INSANE.

How about a challenge for us mere mortals?

You have 29 days to climb 29,032′. 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. 

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. Planet Ultra makes it more fun and more achievable! Choose any or all of your favorite climbs and take 29 days to reach the summit. YOU CAN DO IT!

Everyone who “Everests” earns the Everesting Jersey by Blackbottoms Cyclewear; and you may purchase the matching shorts/bibs. 

The person with the most accumulated elevation gain will receive a special Everesting KOM award.

Everyone who completes the Everesting Challenge will be entered into a drawing to win a FREE Planet Ultra single-day event entry.

Up and OVER? How many times can you Summit in 29 days?

Be immortalized in our Everesting Hall of Fame and earn badges for Double Summit- 58,064′ or Triple Summit- 87,096!

The person with the most accumulated elevation gain will receive their choice of either 50% discount for a Planet Ultra single-day event entry or 20% discount for solo Hoodoo 500 entry.

Acceptable bikes:  Any and all exclusively human powered two-wheeled bicycles. 

Acceptable indoor-apps:  We’re okay with any of them, so long as you’re using a direct-drive smart trainer and are being honest regarding your weight. 

Planet Ultra will provide lots of support, motivation, kudos and accolades for your climbing efforts; cheering you on the entire way!
