Organiser's Description

Sagarmatha.........Goddess of the Sky..........as Mt Everest is known in Nepali

After the succcess of this event this year we have elected to hold it again in 2021. We have also decided to make this a VIRTUAL EVENT again. So...... if YOU wanna join in the fun.....and the pain.....but mostly fun......yeah......mostly fun.......perhaps just a teeny weeny bit of pain...........then please read on.

So what ARE we now asking you to do then?........... Starting anytime on 01 July 2021  you have until Midnight on 31 July to complete as many runs as you need in order to achieve a total overall elevation gain that is equivalent to the height of Mt Everest - if you are wondering what exactly that could possibly be.......it's 29,029 ft!!                              It's gonna be a doddle right?

You can enter as a Solo Runner or as a Relay Team (Teams of 2 or 4 only). So if you don't fancy giving it a bash by yaself then team up with a running buddy (or 3) to give it a go.

ANY runs that you do will count towards your overall total......a fun run on a Sunday morning, a training run in readiness for your "A Race", any other events you have entered over the month.........basically ANY run you do in the month of July 2021

Now you may all be wondering exactly how we will be recording the results.....then again you may not be.....but it is kinda important so we are gonna tell you anyway.....cos that is just the kind of thing we do. We're nice like that.

 

Considering that the aim of this event is to run the equivalent height of Mt Everest.....then ELEVATION is King.....or Queen..... whichever you prefer. Results will be prioritised on who has gained the most elevation over the month. Whoever has the most elevation will be First Place and everyone else ranked in descending order on the elevation that they achieved.
Now if everyone achieves different overall elevations then our job will be easy. However, things often don't always pan out like that. Do they. Sooooo......... After that we will look at Time. If more than one person has the same elevation then we will look at who achieved it in the overall LEAST running time and rank their results on that.
Finally we will look at DISTANCE. Once again...... If more than one person has the same elevation and time then we will look at who achieved it in the overall LEAST distance and rank their results on that.
Team entries will work exactly the same, however it will be the Teams combined totals that are considered and not the individual results of team members.
There will be separate results for Solo Runners, 2 Person Relay Teams, and 4 Person Relay Teams, and Canicross entrants.

 

Now you will need to provide us with evidence of your runs...........so once you have completed a run then ping us an email with a screenshot from your Strava, Garmin, Suunto, etc, of that run. You can do that after each individual run you do or save them up for a bit of time and sent them in small batches. You can contact us at info@crookedtrackswiltshire.co.uk

 

Please Note: The prices quoted in the information are "per person" - ie: £20 per Solo Runner, £15 per person in the 2 Person Relay Teams , and £10 per person  in the 4 Person Relay Teams

 

Transfers

In the event that you have entered but can no longer make the day then transferring your place to someone else is permitted and is the preferred option.  To that end please contact us prior to arranging your own transfer. Any reimbursement of the entry fee then becomes a matter between yourself and the replacement runner. However if we have sold out the event and have a waiting list in operation then  transfers will not be permitted and priority will be given to those on the waiting list.  Any transfers  will not be permitted less than 7 days before the event.

 

Event Cancellation

In the unlikely event  that the race has to be cancelled, delayed, or postponed, due to circumstances beyond our control - no refunds will be payable.
