What Is Your Dream Summit?
Tell us and we could help you achieve it.
Summits are reached everywhere in nature, not just at the top of mountains. Your summit is your own inner peak. The moment you discover something new, break through a barrier or connect to the natural world.
If you want to tackle a physical challenge, fight for your favorite natural space, or get your community into the outdoors, adidas TERREX wants to help make it happen.
TERREX will help three winners realize their dream summit projects with expertise, support and products. Winning summits will also be filmed as part of the United by Summits campaign. Project ideas should fit in one of three categories: Community, Sustainability, or Adventure, with one project chosen from each category. To apply, simply tell us about your dream summit.
Projects should be based on the activities that TERREX love - hiking, biking, climbing, mountaineering, trail running and snow sports. Projects will initially be assessed against a series of criteria to examine the eligibility and achievability. Your idea doesn’t need to be fully planned or costed, but it must be realistic. The first projects will be brought to life in the 1st half of 2023, so your idea must also be achievable in this timeframe.
Shortlisted projects will then be presented to a panel of highly respected heroes from the outdoor community who represent some of the huge cross section of people from around the globe who find freedom and excitement in natural spaces. They bring their passion and expertise to the judging process, forged by many years of outdoor adventuring.
