Virtual Mount Everest climb

Virtual Mount Everest climb

Run the equivalent height gain as Mount Everest at 29,000 feet

Some members took on a virtual Mount Everest climb. Twenty-four participants took part and achieved the matching elevation gain in just fourteen days.
Amazing achievement for some from the club who were not to keen on running up hills! This being the first time they have attempted for many club runners, some only recently having graduated our couch to five program. Favorite place to run up to was Wellington Monument obviously. 
Just another way we are trying to keep our club motivated whist we continue solo self distancing rules.

Participants and height gained individually.
