Collect your gear. Set out for Argentina. Start your trek by hiking to Confluencia, the first base camp on Mount Aconcagua. Here, you will start adjusting to the altitude and planning your journey. You will need at least four days of good weather forecast to make a summit attempt.
The Andes are the largest continental mountain range in the world, extending north and south to the extreme tips of South America. The crown peak of the Andes and highest summit of South America is Mount Aconcagua, rising to 22,841 ft (6,962m). Grab your shoes and find some hills; it is time to test your mettle against the mountain.
Can you conquer Aconcagua, or will the mountain conquer you?
What do I get with my order? This package includes a Summit: Aconcagua entry and downloadable bib.
How does the challenge work? To complete this challenge, you will record 22,841 ft (6,962m) of elevation gain. Our results platform will keep track of your total elevation gain from the activities you submit until you reach the peak!

How do I submit results? After you register, you will receive an activation email. Think of this as your check-in at the Registration Tent before you head to the Start Line. You can use any app or device to track your run. You can submit results by entering your activities manually or connecting directly to one of these apps: Strava, Garmin, fitbit, Polar, Suunto, or Coros.

Do I have to run? Absolutely not! This is your race and you get to complete it at your pace. When you submit results, you will be able to select what type of activity you used to complete the distance.
