  • The Himalayan Double Everest Challenge - 58,058 feet of vertical climb 

Simply pick your event from the choices above and whether you want to RUN or RIDE!  Your journey will be complete when you reach the top of your challenge elevation.

Participants will have from June 1, 2020 - August 31, 2020 to complete their challenge.  

EVEREST MEDAL AND BIB

When you complete your event, you will earn this amazing one of a kind custom medal to commemorate your performance. 

 

How will i receive my medal and bib

The Conquer Everest Elevation Challenge is open to anyone, anywhere and runs from June - the end of August.   If you live in north eastern Ohio (Lake County) or western Pennsylvania (Allegheny County or surrounding), you can pick your items up in person at your local Second Sole Running store in Mentor, Ohio or Pro Bike + Run shops in the Pittsburgh region as soon as they are available.   If you live outside the region, we are happy to ship you your SWAG.

As this is a virtual race and people will be participating at their own pace, we anticipate the following:

  1. Participants will receive their medal and custom bib when they complete the event.
  2. Anyone who is registered by June 30th will be able to begin receiving their SWAG in mid July, upon completion of the challenge.
  3. Anyone who registers beginning July 1st will be able to begin picking up their SWAG in mid to late August, upon completion of the challenge.

 

how to run or ride a virtual race
  1. REGISTER
    1. Sign up for the race you want to participate in, here on the RunSignUp registration page.
  2. SWAG
    1. You will receive an email before the start of the virtual event letting you know when the SWAG (Stuff We All Get) will be mailed to you, or if you are local to our company (Lake County, Ohio or Allegheny County Pennsylvania) when you can pick it up.
  3. RUN YOUR RACE
    1. The next step is to complete the challenge you signed up for between the dates that are specified in the instructions or on the web site.  Since this is a "Virtual" event, you can RUN or RIDE wherever and whenever you want.  Unless there are explicit instructions stating otherwise, you can run the distance all at once, or break it into multiple runs on different days.  Remember, Virtual = Flexible.
  4. POST YOUR PROGRESS
    1. After completing your individual segments, please post your results to this web site, using the Results link at the top of the page.  The platform will track your progress based on the event you signed up for and will also let you know when you have reached the top of the mountain.  There are no awards for our virtual races, as everything is on the honor system when posting race results.
  5. PRINT YOUR FINISHERS CERTIFICATE
    1. After you complete the challenge, be sure to print your custom finishers certificate.   Simply click on your name in the results page after they are posted and click the link below your bib number in the upper right hand corner.  See photo below.
