"Happiness is hiking with friends."


Hiking is a great way to get exercise, refresh your mind and body, enjoy the beauty of the Olympic Peninsula, and connect with friends and family. Whether this is your first time joining us or you're a seasoned hike-a-thon'er, there are lots of new elements to enjoy and share this year!

How To Participate

  • Register at hikeunited24.givesmart.com before July 1.
  • We will send you a link to our private Hike-a-Thon Facebook group.
  • Each Monday during the hike-a-thon, we will announce a HIKING CHALLENGE via email and in the private Facebook group. NEW THIS YEAR: You do not need to have a Facebook account to participate. The Hiking Challenge will be scalable so that folks of all abilities and interest levels can participate. Kid hikers will receive their own challenge. 
  • Take a photo or photos of yourself doing the hiking challenge and either:
  • Complete ALL FIVE HIKING CHALLENGES by Friday, August 2 to receive a HIKE UNITED medal! You do not have to complete each weekly challenge during the week it is announced, but you do need to finish all five by the end of the hike-a-thon. 



Go the Extra Mile Grand Prizes

New this year! For those hikers who are ready to go farther, we'll be presenting a grand prize to one person in each of the following categories:

  • Most Hikes Completed
  • Most Miles Hiked
  • Most Elevation Gained

To "Go the Extra Mile" simply fill out the log in your registration packet or on our website whenever you complete a hike. There is no additional cost to participate, but you will need to track each hike using an objective measurement tool such as a smart watch, hiking app, etc. 



Pilot Program: Trail Blazers

New this year: we're excited to pilot a Trail Blazer program with a few of our recurring hikers. These hikers will have the opportunity to raise money from friends and family in support of their individual goals during the hike-a-thon. We hope to be able to offer this opportunity more widely next year!
