Vail Xtreme Hike 2018


About Xtreme Hike

This coming September the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation invites you to join us in a test of strength and courage at our 4th Annual Xtreme Hike event in Vail, Colorado.

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. Our dedicated group will hike 10 to 20 miles to raise funds and awareness for the CF Foundation's mission to find a cure for cystic fibrosis and to provide all people with the disease the opportunity to lead full, productive lives!

On Xtreme Hike weekend you will be treated to a three-day experience like no other, which starts on Friday, September 21st with a Kickoff Dinner for all hikers and ends on Sunday, September 23rd with a Victory Brunch!

As participants prepare for the physical challenge, hikers are encouraged to raise $2,500 through their personal and social media campaigns.

Your journey includes:

  • Three months of training hikes
  • Daily workout calendar
  • Hotel accommodation for 2 nights in Vail, CO
  • Aid stations along the trail stocked with refreshing food and beverages
  • Official Xtreme Hike wicking shirt
  • Pre-hike Kick Off Dinner
  • Pre-sunrise breakfast on Hike Day
  • Post hike cocktail hour and dinner
  • Victory Brunch

The 2018 Xtreme Hike is limited to 55 people.

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.
