Scale the Summits Destination Challenge: February 1-26, 2021

Catch the world’s most beautiful sights — and its toughest terrain — when you participate in the Scale the Summits Challenge from February 1-26. You’ve got eight thrilling summits, and you'll need to rally your crew to reach them all. 

Registration starts January 19 on the Wellness Portal. Join or create your own team of up to five people. Manually track your steps or sync a device/app.

Track all weeks of the Challenge to earn credit for one "Your Choice" Activity. The activity may be audited. You cannot earn credit for this activity if you have already participated in a Challenge, but don't let that stop you from having a fun fitness goal to start 2021!
