On Oct. 19, the Trail Conference turned 100. To mark that milestone, we held our first-ever Trail-A-Thon. We invited everyone to take on the challenge of walking, hiking, running, or riding 100 miles to help mark our Centennial. While ticking off the miles, participants were given the opportunity to raise money and awareness for the Trail Conference mission. What an adventure it turned out to be!

Over 400 Trail-A-Thon’ers from seven states (including California and Colorado!), ages 2 to 82, geared up to venture more than 18,500 miles. Together, they raised over $46,000.

Our community came together in the spirit of what our organization was founded on, 100 years ago: ensuring great outdoor experiences are possible today, tomorrow, and for generations to come. Thank you to everyone who took the challenge.

The Centennial celebration doesn’t stop here! We’ll be ringing in our second century through October 2021. Stay tuned, Trail Fam!
