DESCRIPTION

This challenge is now CLOSED. Keep watch for new upcoming challenges in 2021!

Join Outdoor Adventures as we take our trips virtual! The Seven Summit Challenge is a great way to grab your roommate and socially distance your way up the seven highest peaks in each of the seven continents. All elevation on ANY hike from August 24th through November 24th, is counted towards your total elevation. Each unique mountain summit has a prize that ranges from T-shirts, to hammocks, to a grand prize of a Black Diamond backpack! All participants must have a Strava account or a GPS unit that calculates elevation on your hike. This challenge is open to all University of Utah faculty, staff, and students. Please follow all public health guidelines and maintain social distancing when out hiking.

In order to participate please sign up for our Strava Club!
