Participating in the Summit Challenge KOM/QOM is free and open to any Summit Challenge 50, 80 or 100-mile registered rider who has the ability to upload their data from a GPS-enabled devise (Garmin, free smart phone app, certain Timex and Soleus devices). The fastest male and female in each KOM/QOM segment will win a free, non-transferrable registration for the 2019 Summit Challenge!

To join in, follow these easy steps:

  1. You must have a Strava account. A basic account is free and easy to start. Visit Strava.com
  2. On the day of the event, look for signs indicating the start and finish of the KOM/QOM. For the 50 and 80-mile routes, the climb is in Browns Canyon, just after the Peoa rest stop. The segment is 2.8 miles long and climbs about 600 feet. For the 100-mile route, the climb is in Wolf Creek Ranch, just after the gate to the top of the hill. The segment is 2.2 miles long and climbs about 1,000 feet.View Segments on Strava:   Brown’s Canyon KOM  |   Wolf Creek KOM
  3. Upload your data no later than 5 PM on Sunday, August 25. We are looking for the fastest time on the segment labeled Summit Challenge KOM.
  4. We will compile the list of KOM/QOM from those whose Strava listing matches our list of registered Summit Challenge riders.

After the ride, you can revisit this web page to see how you compare to other Summit Challenge riders through that segment, as well as pros from the Tour of Utah race. 

*If you take part in the 50 mile, 80 mile or 100 mile route using a Class 1 or Class 2 e-bike and are recording a ride file, please DO NOT post your ride to Strava. We do not include e-bike ride times in the KOM/QOM.
