EVEREST CHALLENGE -YOU VS. THE MOUNTAIN-
We all have an Everest to climb. The road to the top is long, challenging and demanding. Everest Challenge is the obstacle race that mirrors the conditions on the highest mountain on the planet, Mount Everest. Walk over crevasses, avoid avalanches, survive hurricane winds, thin air and steep climbs. Many are those who dream about reaching the top, but few are those who succeed. Are you tough enough? It’s You Vs. The Mountain.
