March Run Climbing Challenge

Leave the flats behind and climb at least 2,000 meters this month.

Challenge Ended: March 31, 2020
Run repeats on your local hill or go for a huge mountain adventure - however you do it, climb at least 2,000 meters over as many runs as you like to complete the Challenge. You'll get a celebratory finisher's badge plus race-ready legs!

Did you know that 57% of runners never hit the snooze button? And that men report loving running uphill more than women do? We didn't either. But after surveying 25,000 runners on Strava, we discovered a ton about why we do this crazy thing.

We expect all athletes to honor the Strava Community Standards, which includes abiding by all health advisements and restrictions in your area prior to undertaking any physical activity.

If you are located in an area that does not allow outdoor activity, you may not participate. Please see our blog with information about exercising during a pandemic.
