There’s solidarity among those who love to climb. On a bike or on foot, we feel at home in the mountains. We understand each other, at least a little.
That’s why we’re adjusting our monthly Climbing Challenge to draw attention to Nepal, where many of our fellow climbers, and those who support them, are suffering in the aftermath of devastating earthquakes. Here’s the plan:
Join the Climb for Nepal Challenge and climb 2,212 meters (7,257 feet) in June. Climb your heart out this month. Run those hill repeats hard. Tell your training partners and friends why you’re out climbing so much. Share your climbing workouts on your social feeds. Spread the word.
Any Strava athlete that completes this Challenge will receive a digital finisher’s badge and be eligible to purchase a custom-designed t-shirt. Strava will donate all profits from t-shirt sales to disaster relief in Nepal through MORE Than Sport.
Join the Challenge today and start climbing for Nepal.
Complete the Challenge and you will unlock the ability to purchase a limited edition Climb for Nepal tee.
The purchasing window will close 5 days after the Challenge ends. The expected delivery time is 6 weeks.
Athletes who complete this Challenge will receive a Climbing digital finishers badge in their Trophy Case and be eligible to purchase a custom-designed t-shirt. Strava will donate all profits from t-shirt sales to disaster relief in Nepal through MORE Than Sport.
The Challenge starts and ends based on each athlete's local time zone.
Manual entries, runs marked private will not count towards your Challenge effort.
All activities logged during the Challenge period must be uploaded to Strava no later than three days after the Challenge ends.
Run hard and be safe. Use common sense when it comes to traffic, weather, or other conditions while taking part in this Challenge. Remember to take care of your hydration and nutrition needs when you’re out on the trails or the road.
