50 Mile Hike Team Relay Challenge – May 6, 2017

Know a group of people who want to tackle the 50-Mile Hike as a group?

 

 

OVERVIEW
Register up to four team members for this unique hiking challenge.  Each member of a team is required to hike at least one of the six sections of trail.  Hiking sections and distances are listed on our site, so start strategizing your plan of attack.

Please note a registered relay team will need its own support vehicle.  Part of this challenge is finding where the trailheads and roads meet.

50 Mile Hike volunteers will be at each trailhead to monitor participant’s times and distances. No cheating allowed!

STEP 1: SET UP A CROWDRISE PAGE & FUNDRAISE.
We ask for a $50.00 donation from each hiker to register for the hike. We also ask that you raise money for your miles through our Crowdrise Team Fundraising Page. For 50-Mile Hike Relay Teams, you may want to create a page for all the members of your team to fundraise together to pool your efforts and spur on some friendly competition for a good cause!  You can join our team and create your own fundraising page to share with family and friends.  If each hiker raises an additional $250 we will achieve our goal of $25,000.

STEP 2: REGISTER HERE
Please note: All participants must be pre-registered; Registration closes May 2nd.

STEP 3: FILL OUT THE WAIVER HERE
Please download this Assumption of Risk & Release Form, sign and deliver on the day of the hike.

STEP 4: WEAR YOUR SWAG WITH PRIDE
On the day of the hike, T-shirts are given to all participating hikers and support staff. Start your collection!
