Hike 40 Challenge

American Hiking Society challenges you to make 2016 the year you spend more time getting active outside. In celebration of American Hiking Society’s 40th anniversary, people of all ages are committing to Hike 40 miles, 40 trails, or 40 unique hikes between New Year’s Day and American Hiking Society’s birthday on October 13th.

Beyond getting to spend more time outdoors, there is an additional feel good component to the Hike 40 challenge. Participants pledge to Hike 40 and raise funds for American Hiking Society to help preserve and protect hiking trails. Each participant can log their hikes or miles while raising funds for their preferred category: trail advocacy, trail outreach or trail stewardship. AHS has set up a team fundraising page on behalf of American Hiking Society’s three main programs and invite you to join in by setting up your own fundraiser. It’s easy to do and takes just 5-10 minutes.

In addition to helping protect the places you love to hike, you can earn some really awesome gear to take on your next adventure. They have curated an extensive list of some of the best outdoor gear and equipment in the industry to reward you for your fundraising efforts.
