About Xtreme Hike


Join us for the 8th Annual XTREME HIKE for an inspiring and life-changing 26+ mile hike in the Berkshires.The picturesque Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort, Hancock, Massachusetts hosts this spectacular 3-day event.The natural beauty of the resort makes the perfect mountainside setting to challenge yourself and build friendships along the way. 

Xtreme Hike is about reaching new heights physically and philanthropically. It is a journey of passion, determination, and personal triumph, as much as it is an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people with cystic fibrosis.

Participants train for three months leading up to the event; a three-day adventure. On Friday evening, hikers receive an itinerary, safety information, and the camaraderie begins. On Saturday, hikers rise before day break to experience the raw beauty of watching the sun rise while they hike. When crossing the finish line, they feel a sense of amazing accomplishment.The weekend finishes with the Victory Celebration Brunch early Sunday morning.

As participants prepare for the physical challenge, hikers are encouraged to raise $2,500 through their personal and social media campaigns.The Xtreme Hike is limited to 65 hikers so register early. 

The journey of participation includes:

  • Three months of training hikes  
  • Daily workout calendar
  • Accommodations for 3 days and 2 nights at Jiminy Peak Resorts
  • Transportation to and from the trail on Hike day
  • Aid stations along the trail stocked with refreshing food and beverages
  • Official Xtreme Hike wicking shirt
  • Pre-hike party
  • Prior to sunrise hike breakfast
  • Post hike dinner and reception
  • Victory breakfast


The journey starts the moment you sign up. You will receive personal coaching, participate in training hikes and connect with a community of people who share your aspiration to reach new heights. Learn about Xtreme Hike events across the country.

Hikers ages 18 and up may participate.  Click here to read the full Hiker Age Policy. 

After online registration, Terry will contact you to confirm the registration and your journey will begin.

You will be invited to attend the Hike Kick Off and participate in training hikes as you’re able and connect with a community of people who share your aspiration to reach new heights.

I like to speak with hikers before it's actually official so they understand the demands of a day of hiking.
