Hike-a-Thon is Washington Trails Association's premiere fundraising event of the year. Every year, hikers collect sponsors and pledges from family and friends, then spend the month of August hiking the mountains, the coasts and everywhere in between.
In 2012, 188 hikers participated in Hike-a-Thon. Collectively they hiked nearly 12,000 miles and raised over $85,000 for trails!
What? Hike-a-Thon is a month-long fundraiser for Washington Trails Association - hikers collect pledges then hit the trail in August to hike.
Why? Because you love hiking! To make your miles count! To protect the trails you love! For the exercise. To get your family out on the trail - or just to motivate you. Funds raised will help WTA advocate for and maintain hiking trails in Washington.
Who? Everyone! Young and old, newbie or thru-hiker, trail volunteer or climber - anyone who loves hiking and hiking trails can participate. Hike as an individual or a team of two to six people.
