Strava Climbing Challenge

Celebrate summer’s end and climb over 11,000 meters this month.

Challenge Ended: August 31, 2015
For most of us, August is the last chance for long summer rides. Shorter days and falling leaves are around the corner, so let’s make the most of summer’s end and go after some huge climbs. 

We’ve picked 11,000 meters just to dial the toughness up a notch from July’s Giro Challenge. This will be unbearably tough for some and a typical month for others – but regardless, it’ll take plenty of hours with the saddle pointed straight uphill. That’s the point. Enjoy what’s left of summer and get fit for fall!    

Complete the Challenge and you’ll receive a well-earned digital finisher's badge for your Strava profile, and you’ll also be eligible to purchase August’s Climbing Challenge jersey in glorious Strava orange. 

(Special kudos to the millions of Strava athletes in the Southern Hemisphere who will tackle this Challenge over the last month of winter. You’ll be in top shape for spring!)
