Set your quads on fire during a week of uphill

Feel the burn with us for World Vertical Week 22!

Suunto World Vertical Week, March 14–20, 2022

Once again, the challenge is here: join us for a week focused on gaining as many quad-burning, glute-busting vertical meters as you possibly can. Punishing legs around the world every year since 2016, World Vertical Week is an opportunity to let the beast out and sweat and curse your way up as many hills as your legs will tolerate.

#verticalweek is also an opportunity for nations to go head to head to see who climbs the most. There’s a longstanding tradition of nations battling for the top spot, as well as competition between sports, to see who can endure the most burn to accumulate the most vertical meters.

Take up the challenge with thousands of others in the Suunto community, share the burn and the magic of breaking through your vertical ceiling! And at the end of the week, we’ll gather the data and report back on which country and sport climbed the most.

To participate in Suunto World Vertical Week, open Suunto app and click the Vertical Week card in your inbox (the bell symbol on the top of your screen takes you there).
