The Virtual Everest Challenge

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 (hundred) times every day. Once you’ve achieved an elevation gain of 8,848m, you just need to submit your evidence to get your well-earned medal.

How it works:

1) Sign up 
2) Complete your challenge
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!
