Strava Climbing Challenge

Climb 9,000 meters in April

Challenge Ended: April 30, 2015
“April is the cruelest month,” T.S. Eliot wrote in "The Wasteland". As the seasons change and the weather turns a corner, we’re inspired by Eliot to concoct our biggest monthly Climbing Challenge yet – 9,000 meters (29,528 feet) in 30 days or less. That’s 152 meters higher than Mount Everest.

Whether you ride relentless laps up your local hill or go on epic mountain adventures, complete this Challenge and you’ll have tackled one of our toughest ever. Bring your training partners and set weekly goals to stay motivated, and don’t forget to chronicle your quest with our engaging new feature, Strava Photos.

Climb at least 9,000 meters between April 1st and April 30th and you’ll earn a unique finishers badge and unlock custom-designed, finishers-only jerseys and bibs.
