In the first Strava Climbing Challenge of 2015, we’re kicking off the new year by challenging you to climb 20,150 feet (6,142 meters) between January 1st and January 31st.
Tackle this Challenge because you want to have fun, push yourself and achieve a goal. Tackle this Challenge because you love to climb.
Do you have what it takes to climb 20,150 feet (6,142 meters) in 31 days? Prove your dedication by summiting as many mountains and doing as many hill repeats as necessary to earn the Challenge finisher badge.
Complete the Challenge and you will unlock the ability to purchase a limited edition Strava Climbing Challenge Jersey.
The 2015 Strava Challenge jersey features a sweatproof zippered pocket for your mobile device, reflective tabs to ensure visibility, and textured stretch fabric on the sleeves and side panels for improved aerodynamics.
The purchasing window will close 3 days after the Challenge ends. The expected delivery time is 5-7 weeks for domestic orders and 6-8 weeks for international.
Athletes who complete this Challenge will receive a Strava Climbing Challenge digital finishers badge in their Trophy Case.
The Challenge starts and ends based on each athlete's local time zone.
Manual entries, trainer rides, or rides 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.
Ride 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 road.
