The Kathmandu Neverest Challenge is the repetition of laps up a hill until you reach the height of Mt Everest – 8,848 metres. You can do it as a team or individually.
You can have from 2-20 people per team. Each team member will complete a lap then mark it on the team lap counter. Teams can complete laps together or separately. Each member can complete as many laps as they wish, with the team aiming to complete the entire distance for their location
Absolutely! Come along and do 1 lap or 50, it’s up to you! Or team up with a group and see how many you can do on the day.
The cut-off time for all competitors is 11pm on the Saturday.
The Kathmandu Neverest Challenge raises funds for the Australian Himalayan Foundation’s programs in Nepal. AHF partners with Himalayan communities to improve access to education and healthcare, and to care for their environment. Find out more here.
While we will have some snacks and water available on the day we strongly recommend participants also bring their own food and electrolytes. We recommend you bring food you have used in other endurance events, or food you would eat on a hike.
You will need clothing appropriate to the weather (remember it’s a long day so bring clothing for warm/cool/wet weather); sunscreen; a water bottle or reusable cup; snacks, food and electrolyte drinks; head torch for solo participants; walking poles particularly for solo participants or teams of two.
