Mount Everest Challenge

January 23–February 26

Mount Everest is surveyed at 29,029 feet in elevation, which equals approximately 3,871 flights or 58,058 steps. The Wellness Committee invites all Clarkson College employees and students to participate in the first Wellness event of the year and make the climb in five weeks.

You may participate as an individual or as part of a team with up to 10 members. Participants may use a variety of tracking devices to measure as you climb steps/flights or walk (typically one flight = 15 steps). You will record the number of flights climbed or steps taken each day and submit your weekly progress.

Teams will need to choose a team leader who will submit the teams’ progress weekly. The weekly progress will be tracked as an incentive to keep you climbing. Plus, all participants who complete the climb will be entered into a drawing. Final logs are due March 1.

All participants must register below by January 18. Once you are registered, you will receive email instructions as well as the tracking log.
