FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What's included in the registration fee?

Registration includes 3 nights of accommodations, all food/beverage/alcohol, all hydration and nutrition choices at the aid stations, a 20-week Training Guide, massage therapists and other recovery aids in our Athlete Recovery Lounge, limited edition event swag, a private online platfofrm for participants only, and more!

What happens before and after the 36-hour challenge?

Check in begins at Noon on Thursday and the event kicks off at 2:30pm. We will have motivational speakers that afternoon to inspire and prepare everyone for the challenge ahead. The hiking challenge begins at 6am on Friday morning and continues until 6pm on Saturday evening with the gondola operating throughout this time. Some people hike through the night, some sleep for a while and go again on Saturday. After the conclusion of the challenge, a ceremony will be held to recognize everyone’s efforts on the mountain, and a party Saturday night to cap things off. Departure is Sunday by 10am.


Do you allow spectators?

Yes. There are portions of the event that are participant-only, but spectators are allowed near the start area and can also ride the gondola to the summit where they can cheer on participants. Accommodations included with registration are for participants only.

Is the challenge 36 continuous hours or is there a break?

The challenge begins at 6am on Friday morning and continues until 6pm on Saturday evening. The gondola is running and you can hike any time you want during this 36 hour period. You do not have to hike for 36 hours non stop. Some participants hike all night until after the sun rises on Saturday morning, but many go and get some sleep! We do encourage everyone to complete at least one hike once the sun goes down on Friday as it’s such a unique and magical experience. Hiking in nature, whether alone or with others, and only seeing the headlamps of other hikers is often a memory that participants talk about and share with others.

Does the entry fee include airfare?

No, the entry fee does not include airfare. Everything will be taken care of once you arrive at the mountain from the time of check-in on Thursday through departure on Sunday.

Do you provide a packing list?

Yes! We provide location specific packing lists for each particular mountain, although relatively minimal gear is required for 29029. Trekking poles are strongly recommended and a headlamp is required. We recommend wearing moisture wicking base layers for the varying conditions throughout the day and evening, as well as trail shoes to provide additional traction while hiking up the mountain.

How does the Waitlist work?

If a spot at any of the events becomes available, we contact those on the Waitlist in chronological order to fill an open spot on a first come, first serve basis. If we reach out to someone on the Waitlist they have 24 hours to claim the spot before we reach out to the next person on the list.

What is the Refund/Transfer Policy?

You can find the refund policy here.

What is the age requirement to participate?

The minimum age requirement is 16 years old. Any minors will need to be registered with an adult and will share a hotel room with that adult. If registering for an event in which the included accommodations are tents, a Tent for Two will need to be purchased for children under 18.

How do I register for 29029?

Online registration will be taking place during the first week of November ‘22. This will take place on the 29029 website on a first come first served basis.

How many people do each event?

We limit each event to a very small number of around 250 participants as this really helps create a sense of community and camaraderie on the mountain.  Friendships and bonds are formed while hiking with others in addition to sharing meals and tents with others

How can I volunteer at an event?

Please email basecamp@29029everesting.com to let us know which event you are interested in volunteering. We will then be in touch with additional information regarding this opportunity. More information and a sign up form for 2022 events can be found here.

Do you include a training plan?

Yes, we include a 20-week Training Guide with your registration. This Guide is emailed on a bi-monthly basis beginning 5 months prior to the event. Our coaches have created these guides to help each participant prepare for the challenge. The Guide is a three tiered system (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced) in which the participant can choose which level to follow based on the description we provide for each. If you’re willing to put in the work, this guide will have you ready to hike 29029 ft on your event weekend.

How long does one need to train for this?

This varies, as everyone has a different beginning fitness level. We do know that our 20 week Training Guide will help prepare you for the challenge. We also know that at some point on the mountain, the willingness to keep going becomes as much mental as physical. This is when climbing with us becomes a transformative experience for many.

What type of accommodations are provided?

All participants in Snowbasin #1 are provided with 3 nights accommodations in luxury glamping tents in our participant village. Single entry tickets include one bed in a 3-person tent. You can request your tentmates after purchase.

How does a 'Tent for Two' work?

In a Tent for Two entry, you and one other participant will have a private tent for the two of you to share. You'll have the option of having two single beds or one queen bed in your private tent.

Can I come to 29029 without a tentmate(s)?

Of course! Roughly ⅓ of our participants attend a 29029 alone. We assign you to a luxury glamping tent with 2 other participants of the same gender.

Why does a Tent for Two cost more than 2 Single Entries?

The Single Entry option is for a three person tent. The Tent for Two costs more per person as there are only two people in this tent.

Are you able to accommodate gluten free, vegan or vegetarian diets?

Yes, we accommodate each of these during meals at 29029.
