This exciting hiking challenge brings together a vibrant community of adventurers who are seeking to push their limits and conquer their own 'Everest'.

Hike up, walk down, rest if required and repeat! Each summit is one step closer to this huge achievement. No climbing experience required. This challenge can be entered as an individual, a team of 4 or the APEX Pro.

Completing 9.2 ascents of the beautiful Helvellyn mountain will take you to the equivalent of climbing Mount Everest, passing Ben Nevis, Mount Fuji and K2 along the way. 

APEX is more than an event. From the day you sign up, you become a valued member of a supportive community dedicated to unlocking your true potential.
