Start training right now for the Ultimate Hike on the Foothills Trail this October. The reason you may want to start your training so soon is because the hike travels 28.3 miles - in just one day!
The hike is sponsored by Ultimate Hike, an organization that is helping to raise money towards finding a cure for children's cancer, the #1 cause of death by disease in children.
If you happen to live in the Chattanooga area, Outdoor Chattanooga will be holding an Information Meeting on July 17th, at 6:30 p.m., at their Coolidge Park facility on 200 River Street. The public is invited to learn how they can train for the event, which happens on Saturday, Oct. 13, 2012. Leah Bartlett, from Cure Search, will be there to answer questions about training, fundraising and the hike experience. No pre-registration is required for the meeting. Additional information meetings will be held on July 18 at Rock/Creek and July 20 at Cloudland Canyon State Park.
Ultimate Hike events are scheduled for several locations around the country over the next several months. For more information, please click here.
