Can my child participate in Xtreme Hike?

Children under the age of 18 are not permitted to participate in Xtreme Hike. However, we welcome their support as an Xtreme Hike volunteer. For more information about becoming an event volunteer please go to your event home page and click on the “Become a Volunteer” button.

Safety on the trail for the day of the Xtreme Hike Event is the CF Foundation’s number one concern.  Please help us maintain a safe environment for all registered participants.

Xtreme Hike participants must be registered and be at least 18 years of age.

Restrictions may be imposed by the trail authorities on the number of event participants allowed on the trail on the day of the hike (including our hikers, volunteers and staff).  Fees could be assessed against the CF Foundation for exceeding the number of event participants, volunteers and staff allowed.

For safety concerns and out of respect to all registered CF Foundation Xtreme Hike event participants, we ask that “guests” or unregistered participants do not join registered hikers during the course of the event. Additional unregistered hikers could compromise safety resources on the trail and diminish the experience for registered Xtreme Hike participants

Please note that the CF Foundation has the right to ask any participant to leave the event at any time if this policy or other CF Foundation policies is not followed.

Your local chapter contact is happy to answer any questions you may have regarding this policy.

What is a "virtual hiker?"

Registering as a virtual hiker is a great option for anyone who cannot participate on hike day but still wants to be part of their local Xtreme Hike. All virtual hikers will receive access to the "Participant Center" to help them raise funds for Xtreme Hike, and can still qualify to receive the Xtreme Hike dri-wick t-shirt and to become a top hiker.

If I can no longer hike at the event, can I still participate in Xtreme Hike?

If you are no longer able to hike, you can absolutely still be a part of Xtreme Hike either as a volunteer or a virtual hiker. For more information about becoming an event volunteer, please go to your event home page and click on the “Become a Volunteer” button.

How can I get a dri-wick shirt at Xtreme Hike?
