2022 Xtreme Hike FAQ. 

Q: How extreme is Xtreme Hike?
A: That is up to you! Xtreme Hike event is a fun, family friendly event and we encourage all types of hikers to join. Our hike offers participants with a couple of options as hikers can choose between a short and a long trail. Our first trail option is 14 miles. This is shorter than some of our training hikes so please join us on one of our team led hikes to learn how to best pace yourself. Our shorter hike will also have a later start time allowing you more time to rest up the morning of. Our longer option is about 27 miles though this can be modified to exclude a rock scramble. There will be multiple rest areas along each of the trails where you can replenish your water and refuel with a snack. Transportation vans will also be available should you want a ride back to the resort. We have many hikers that like to move quickly and many that like to enjoy the day, so you decide how Xtreme your hike will be.

Q: Why is the fundraising goal $2,500?
A: The recommend funding amount is set at $2,500 to cover to costs the foundation incurs for the weekend. As a hiker you will receive many perks, like:

  • An all-inclusive weekend at Massanutten resort
