Starting on the summer solstice, Saturday 20 June 2020, and running for eight weeks, we’re challenging you to see how high you can climb while raising vital funds. The challenge is about how many vertical metres you can ascend, either on your stairs inside or on a hill outside.
The challenge will run for eight weeks, and you’re able to join at any point during this time.
When you sign up, you’ll be asked how many metres you’re aiming to climb. To summit Snowdon you’ll need to enter 1085m, if it’s the Matterhorn you’ll enter 4478m and if it’s Everest you’ll enter 8848m. Throughout the challenge you’ll need to log your metres climbed on your own fundraising page, to reach your summit.
Once you’ve signed up and your fundraising page is ready, make sure you add a profile picture and keep your page updated. Then all you need to do is share with your friends and family.
Whether you choose to take on this challenge inside or out, you’ll need to measure the number of vertical metres you climb.
I’m taking the stairs!
To convert your stairs at home, for every 1 flight of stairs = 3 metres elevation.
Or see our handy table below to help you plan your challenge. You’ll need to simply add the number of metres you complete, to your fundraising page:
- Snowdon - 1,085m
19.30m a day over 56 days
7 flights per day (based on average of 15 stairs per flight)
- Matterhorn- 4,478m
79.90m a day over 56 days
27 flights per day (based on average of 15 stairs per flight)
- Everest- 8,848m
158m a day over 56 days
53 flights per day (based on average of 15 stairs per flight)
I’ll be outside
Whatever fitness app you use, it’ll track the metres you climb during your activity for you. Simply log these on your fundraising page.
There are lots of popular fitness apps and services you can use to track your elevation, including Strava, MapMyFitness and Fitbit.
No, you can take this challenge on at any time between Saturday 20 June – Saturday 15 August 2020.
Yes, once you sign up you can create or join a team. If you are setting a team up, you need a team name and team fundraising target. When others sign up they can choose to join a team and type in the same team name, this will make sure all your pages together.
