This one-off unique event on 4 June 2023 offers entrants the opportunity to be part of a Hells500 recognised record event. We also hope to have the record accredited by Guinness. If approved entrants will be able to purchase a participant’s certificate from Guinness.
The location is Peaslows hill just north of Buxton which Andy van Bergen Everesting founder of Hells500 advised us is almost the perfect hill in terms of length and elevation. We also chose this location for ease of access to entrants from across the UK.
Andy (Hells500) has kindly given us a lot of his time to help us set up and support the event.
“ I am constantly inspired by our incredible community who love to continually take things to the next level, and there is nothing more next level than attempting to set a new group Everesting record!”
– Andy van Bergen, Everesting Founder –
The event will run on closed roads, you can start at 5am and must be done by 22:00 giving you 17 hours to complete the challenge and be part of the record. We will have chipped timing so you don’t need to keep count of your ascents and cumulative time. Post-event we will submit the data to Hells500, but entrants will still need to lodge personal applications which are free. Andy and his team will then cross-reference our event data with the applications to verify the record.
If you are unable to complete your Everest by 10pm you can carry on and claim your individual Everesting accreditation, but your ride will not be part of the group record.
The event is not a race and the ethos is to support each other as a team so you all get the record.
As well as chip timing there will be a feed station, medical and mechanical support, fantastic commemorative medal, professional commentary and media broadcasts. Event jerseys are currently in design and will shortly be available for order.
We are limiting this amazing fully supported Everesting event to 100 riders on safety grounds, so sign up early to avoid disappointment.
