Event Details

A 24HR+ supported event – full support. From the start right until the very, VERY end.

Get ready…It’s here! The first official group supported Everesting challenge attempt in the UAE.

Everesting is an international challenge that involves cycling the equivalent elevation of Mt Everest (or half) in one event. Information can be found on the official Everesting website

The target:
Half Everesting: 4424m ascent, approx 80km uphill climbing
Full Everesting: 8848m elevation, approx 160km uphill climbing

For this challenge, the ride will be done on a select segment of Jebel Jais – chosen for its optimum elevation gain. Basecamp will provide you with all of your water, mechanical and medical support and our support drivers will be with you on the mountain as you undertake one of the most brutal but rewarding cycling challenges.
