Participate in Hike-a-Thon and Win Great Prizes

Posted by Jake Strickland at Jul 22, 2011 11:33 AM |

Supporting WTA is #1 to participate in Hike-a-Thon. Great prizes are #2.

It’s not too late to sign up for WTA's 8th annual Hike-a-Thon!

If you frequent this site, you’ve probably heard about Hike-a-Thon. It’s simple: sign up, get some friends and family to sponsor you, and hike during the month of August. All the money you raise goes towards maintaining and protecting Washington’s trails.

Making our miles count for trails is the number one reason to support Hike-a-Thon. However, the awesome prizes donated by our generous sponsors might be number two!

Our all-star cast of sponsors has provided some amazing prizes, which you can win in all sorts of ways. Raising the most money, hiking the furthest, recruiting the most new WTA members, submitting the most trip reports, and other competitions can all net you great prizes!

If you’re an individual hiker, you could win a Nallo 2 tent from Hilleberg the Tentmaker. Are you a fly fisher? Maybe a convertible Fikkes fly rod/hiking pole catches your fancy. Or, a Mountain Hardwear Fluid 26 backpack could be yours. Team prizes include private hikes with hiking celebrities and book sets from Mountaineers Books.

Not to mention, you’ll receive prizes just by reaching certain fundraising goals. Starting at $250, you can earn cumulative prizes, ranging from Clif bars to Ahnu shoes! For a full list of available prizes and categories, check out our prizes page here.

Sign up before the end of July, and you’ll still be eligible for our first Hike-a-Thon prize of the year – most money raised before July 31! Winners receive an OR ditty bag and a custom Adventure print set of cards. So, register today and starting planning for Hike-a-Thon!

Hike-a-Thon 2011 is presented by Mountain Hardwear – Seattle Store.
