NEVEREST FAQS

WHO CAN ENTER?

Neverest is open to anyone. Children under the age of 16 can only join the team event, and must be accompanied by a supervising adult at all times.

WHEN DO ENTRIES CLOSE?

Check your individual location page for closing dates

WHAT DOES MY ENTRY COVER?

Your entry covers the cost of the event, your Kathmandu Neverest t-shirt (while stocks last), water and electrolytes, some snacks, and an amazing support team.

HOW DO I GET MY T-SHIRT?

Your Kathmandu Neverest t-shirt will be available to pick up at registration on the day

HOW DOES NEVEREST WORK?

The Kathmandu Neverest Challenge is the repetition of laps up a hill until you reach the height of Mt Everest above sea-level (8,848m). You can do it as a team or individually.

There is also the option of the solo Half – the height of Mt Everest from Basecamp(3468m) and the solo Kosci – the height of Mt Kosciuszko above sea-level (2228m).

HOW DOES THE TEAM CHALLENGE WORK?

You can have from 2-20 people per team. Each time a team member completes a lap they mark it on the team lap counter. Teams can complete laps together or separately. Each member can complete as many laps as they wish. The challenge is complete when your team completes the whole number of laps.

CAN I JUST DO SOME OF THE CHALLENGE?

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.

IS THERE A CUT OFF TIME?

The cut-off time for all competitors is either 10pm or 11pm on the Saturday night (depending on location). Check your event page to be sure.

WHAT ARE WE RAISING FUNDS FOR?

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.

WHAT SHOULD I EAT DURING THE EVENT?

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, and enough to sustain you the whole time you are at the event.

WHAT SHOULD I BRING?

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; and walking poles particularly for solo participants or teams of two. See the full gear list for more details.

HOW DO I GET THERE?

Check your individual location page for transport options

CAN WE DO THE CHALLENGE AS A FAMILY?

Yes! We would love to have you register as a family! Remember children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a supervising adult at all times

CAN YOU LOOK AFTER MY BAGS?

No we don’t look after bags or gear during the event. The organisers bear no responsibility for any valuables or equipment you may have.
