    SUMMER TRAILS VIRTUAL ~ KILIMANJARO


    From Londorossi Gate at 1,800m all the way up to Uhuru Peak summit at 5,895m, this remarkable challenge is well known by the Ultra Challenge community as one of our esteemed international events & the highest free-standing mountain in the world!

    If you’re an aspirant ‘Kili’ climber, there’s no better way to prepare yourself for the real deal than to take on the virtual M’s beforehand.

    Take on your locals hills or even your stairs at home to see how you measure up against our virtual Kilimanjaro Challenge.

    For frame of reference, this is equivalent walking up 20,475 standard steps, 1,365 floors or over 13 x to the top of London’s Shard building!

    LOGGING YOUR WALKS, HIKES AND RUNS

    The elevation you achieve during all your walks, runs and hikes (and stair climbs!) counts towards your total.
    You can simply add them by hand as you go or alternatively, if you have Strava, link your account to your UltraBritain profile and we will collect your activities automatically.
