We've had a running mileage challenge in this forum, with people doing as much as 500 miles per month in the summer, and a 100 to 300 mile challenge for November, seeing as how it's getting dark, cold, and rainy in some places. But we haven't had a hill climbing challenge, and now we do.
I tried to pick a number that's reasonable, something folks can do, but also a number that will make people sweat a bit. Of course, if you don't like it, you can pick your own goal; if you do, reply with what you're shooting for. People can post updates in this thread as the month goes on.
