WIN – Everest goodie bags - CLOSED

Seen the film? Now WIN the T-shirt, hoodie and hat. Geographical is giving away FIVE bags of EVEREST film goodies

Geographical has teamed up with Universal Studios to give FIVE lucky readers the chance to win an amazing Everest goodie bag. These are no ordinary bags filled with a few branded pens and out-of-date candy either. Each bag contains a chunky, fur-lined hoodie, a long-sleeved performance T-shirt, and a super thick Everest beanie. 


For those of you who have not seen the film or read our review, Everest is inspired by the incredible events surrounding an attempt to reach the summit of the world’s highest mountain. The film documents the awe-inspiring journey of two different expeditions challenged beyond their limits by one of the fiercest snowstorms ever encountered by mankind.

Their mettle tested by the harshest elements found on the planet, the climbers face nearly impossible obstacles as a lifelong obsession becomes a breathtaking struggle for survival.


The epic adventure stars Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, Robin Wright, Michael Kelly, Sam Worthington, Keira Knightley, Emily Watson and Jake Gyllenhaal.

Everest is in UK cinemas from 18 September 2015.


To be in with a chance of winning one of the FIVE goodie bags simply email the answers to the questions below to [email protected] before 27 October. Please put your postal address in the email in case you win (we only use this for winning entries – not for marketing).

QUESTION 1: After which British surveyor is Mount Everest named?

QUESTION 2: In which year did the first female climber reach the summit?

QUESTION 3: If no one summits Mount Everest in 2015, this will be the first time this has happened in how many years?
