Mount Everest is some 8850 metres above sea level, making it the highest point on earth. 8850 metres equates to 115 times up Le Val des Terres hill, situated on the Southside end of St. Peter Port. This is the third time the charity event will be taking place and it is set to run over 30 consecutive days.
The event is open for individual as well as team challenges, this year we will be giving medals to all participants who raise funds for the Sarah Groves Foundation and in-turn are supporting two local charities – the Guernsey Youth Commission and the Guernsey Sports Commission . Each member will record their own number of laps using any suitable walking app (Garmin, Strava, etc), and we shall also be providing the JustGiving link so you can set up a sponsorship page.
Members have not only benefited from a physical fitness perspective, but also from the amazingly positive effects on mental health, of meeting new friends, and of having a challenge with a highly rewarding end goal.
Circuit : Up Le Val des Terres, turn right to go down to the Dorset Arms public house, turn right to go down to Havelet Bay, and repeat. Until you experience the beauty of the consistent winning feeling as you complete every circuit, then you will never appreciate just how special The Everest Challenge really is. Simply, it’s a fantastic way to kickstart your 2021 vision.
