Everest Challenge

February 8, 2021 @ 7:00 am - March 29, 2021 @ 10:00 pm

Everest Challenge
Event start date: 8th February 2021 / Event end date: 29th March 2021
The Everest Challenge is a run/walk event where the goal is to travel the elevation of Mount Everest (8800 m) in the time that it took Sir Edmund Hillary in 1953 (7 weeks). We aim to encourage local people to not only utilise the grandstand, but to get fit while doing so.
You can do it solo or as part of a team to help motivate each other. Get your family, friends and work colleagues to join your team. Put the challenge out there and see what you and your team can achieve.
Individual – $20
Team (x4 members) – $80
All proceeds made throughout the challenge will be donated to a school in Nepal that the legend himself helped build. You are welcome to set up a give-a-little page to contribute back to the cause and to help with motivation throughout the 7 weeks.
How it works:
– Participants must complete x400 climbs of the grandstand over 7 weeks e.g. up and down = 1 climb.
– You can complete as many climbs as you want in a day, at any time during the day.
– Once you have finished your climbs for the day, scan the QR code located around the grandstand and simply log your climbs for that day. Please note, you will still need to add your name upon logging your climbs. You MUST Remember to record your climbs. No log = no overall results.
Alternatively you can download the sporty app, find Mitre 10 Park Hawke’s Bay, and then click the ‘Register’ button. From here, click the “Everest Challenge Log” to log your climb(s
