Mount Everest is an iconic reference to talk about sport and height. What about an Everest Elevation Challenge over a season or more time like a year? It would be great if we could try a challenge beyond a single month.
What do you think about it?
I love it! Let's get to Everesting! 🏔🏔🏔

Thanks for submitting your idea to create a challenge to climb the elevation of Everest.
We have had a few challenges like as the "Mt. Everest Running Climbing Challenge" in the past, as well as The Le Col x Strava 8848 Challenge for 2 years in a row. So you'll be pleased to know that this is something we've previously done and will continue to do!
Another fun way to create a challenge that lasts longer than a month or that encompasses a specific elevation/distance is by creating a Group Challenge. There are currently 4 types of Group Challenges you can create:

Thanks, @Shant and @Soren for your comments!
The Le Col challenges are a great option, but for me, as a runner, having a specific running challenge is definitely better. Keeping a challenge for a few months seems like an amazing and hard challenge. Perseverance is always a necessary quality of any runner
Just adding on to what @avezado_bello said. The Le Col 8848m Challenge wasn't enough time. I didn't reach the elevation goal even though I ran every day that month.
Last month, it took me the full month to reach the 2000m running elevation challenge. If Everest elevation challenges (for runners and walkers) are stretched out to a few months, or even a year, more would be able to complete them.
Also, a long-term challenge motivates athletes to come back to Strava month after month, so I think there are more potential benefits to extending some challenges if other athletes like it too.
"Climb the Height of Everest in One Year or Faster"
So is the idea, can we have some quarterly and annual challenges? eg run 2023km in 2023, run the elevation of Everest by March etc
@VikK that would be great. I see a lot of groups pop up for 2023 in 2023. If it was an official challenge, it would be interesting to track over the course of a full year and have athletes comment within challenges
Thanks everyone for chiming in here. @avezado_bello taking the most recent comments into consideration, I'd be happy to edit your original idea (subject) to reflect the suggestion for Strava Challenges with a duration longer than a month -- if that's your desire. Otherwise, you can submit a new idea. Let me know.
I am very glad that this idea has been considered. Thanks, @Shant, @VikK and, of course, @Soren, for your participation in the discussion. The idea is clear: to complete the Everest height in a time longer than a month, maybe in one season like spring or summer, or another amount of time like even a year. The name could be Everest Elevation Challenge as said @Shant, if I am not wrong, a few days ago.
Thanks a lot one more time for considering this idea!
