About Xtreme Hike

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Xtreme Hike program takes hikers through some of the most scenic trails in the nation to raise funds and awareness for cystic fibrosis. 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.

The Metro DC Chapter’s Xtreme Hike will span a 22 mile route throughout the wilderness of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. All hikers will enjoy accommodations for three days and two nights at Wintergreen Resort. This includes an energizing, pre-hike pasta party, pre-hike breakfast, post party dinner and a “Victory” breakfast on Sunday. 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 75 people.

The journey of participation includes:

  • Three months of training hikes
  • Daily workout calendar
  • Accommodations for 3 days and 2 nights
  • 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 pasta party
  • Prior to sunrise hike breakfast
  • Post hike dinner and reception
  • Victory breakfast

Hikers ages 18 and up may participate.  Click here to read the full Hike Event Policy.

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.
