Wrong country you say, no, this German race takes its name because the up and down combined would be the height of Everest, 8.848metres in total. But thats not up and down once, you climb up and down sandstone steps, 397 in all, lots of times, until you have done Everest. Long story short, its 79,400 steps altogether, luckily you can work in teams, or if crazy enough go solo, you have 24 hours to complete your climb. And if its disance you are interested in, you will have run 84.39 kms.
