First Edition of Rarau Everesting
Join the Tribe!
At the end of each month we send out a newsletter that keeps you up to date with important events in the running world, gives you training ideas and motivates you for your next competition.
The idea behind the Everesting concept couldn’t be simpler: run up a hill until you reach 8,848m – the height of Mount Everest.
The reality is a relentless endurance battle that will push you to your physical and mental limits.
Achieve a level difference equal to Mount Everest and you’ll become a member of the RARE Everesting 8,848+ Elite Club.
For your Everesting attempt to be approved, you must:
- Accumulate +8,848 m level difference;
Follow the marked route to the summit of Rarau;
- Descend the marked route from the summit of Rarau (same)
- No sleep – you must complete the challenge in one period;
- Breaks (eating, drinking, recharging) are included in your time;
- You must reach the summit each time;
- You must get down safely and return to base camp;
- Time limit 30h max;
Everyone who makes at least 1 ascent will receive the FINISHER medal
Between 2 and up to 9 climbs, you will receive an engraving on the FINISHER medal with your name, time, and total accumulated elevation in the competition.
For 10 climbs you will receive the above + the special RARAU Everesting 8.848+ Elite Club trophy.
For the first edition of Rarau Everesting 130 participants are registered.
