In the second edition of the Strava Climbing Challenge, we move from the hills of Britain to take on the world's highest mountain. Strava is challenging you to climb the cumulative elevation of Mt. Everest in 20 days (or less*).
Do you have what it takes to climb 8,848 meters (29,029ft) between November 8th and November 27th? Prove your love of climbing by summiting as many mountains and doing as many hill repeats as necessary to earn the Challenge finisher badge.
*Some might even tackle the Challenge in one day, a feat known as "Everesting".
Complete the Challenge and you will unlock the ability to purchase a limited edition jersey for $120. There is both a Men's and Women's version available.
This jersey is manufactured by Cuore, a company loved amongst athletes, which produces kits for many of the Pro Tour teams. It features a sweatproof zippered pocket for your mobile device, and a textured stretch fabric on the sleeves and side panels for improved aerodynamics.
After completing the Challenge, an email will be sent which will include a link to purchase the jersey. A button will also appear below the jersey on this Challenge page which will take you to the product page in the Shop.
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.
