Uphill Challenge


The Uphill Challenge is a charity cycling race that is organised by Uphill Challenge asbl, the ACC Contern and the cycling club Hirondelle Schuttrange. The goal of the event is to raise money for a good cause by completing a 236m climb at the Hostert Charly’s Gare as fast and as much as possible within 3 hours. The benefits of the 2017 edition will be donated to the "Alupse" charity organization. Registration is free and it is possible to participate as an individual or in a relay team of maximum 5 riders. All participants are encouraged to find sponsors willing to participate in the fund raising.
