Virtual Race: The Everest Challenge – Anytime
Have you ever wanted to climb Mount Everest? Do you like the sound of reaching 8,848m above sea level, the highest point on Earth, at an altitude where humans are not designed to survive and where aeroplanes cruise? That sounds very dangerous, expensive and difficult to do in line with social distancing.....
But we have a solution – a big challenge for Isolation 2020. Can you climb the equivalent of Mount Everest in 12 weeks? In this challenge, you can go out to the hills on your daily exercise or simply tackle the stairs a couple of times every day... achieve 8,848m of elevation gain before the end isolation, and this well-earned medal can be yours!
How it works:
1) Sign up to your race
2) Complete your run
3) Upload your evidence to Virtual@runforcharity.com on completion
4) Put your feet up
5) Wait for the postman to drop off your medal!
Simply take a picture of your fitness tracker, watch or any other tech device which can show you having completed your challenge and send it via email to email@example.com with your name, the name of the challenge you did and our charity name. During isolation we will also accept daily written logs or a picture of you at the end of your challenge with your time and distance written on a piece of paper.
All medals are subject to availability at this time so please bear with us during isolation however we will aim for no later than 2 weeks after isolation ends if there are any delays.
Good luck, and remember "Go Hard, and Go Straight Home"
Registration Fee: £13 (this includes a Foundation-branded running vest)
