Do you laugh in the face of frigid winter weather? Do you scoff at Mother Nature's attempts to keep you shut up indoors, instead basking in the natural winter wonderland? Well, there's no better way to show off your hearty Minnesotan constitution than by taking on the Polar Trek Challenge!!

The Polar Trek Challenge
Starting at the beginning of January, you will have until the end of April to complete the total distance of one of three Trek options:
      - Trek to North Branch = 45 miles
      - Trek to Hinckley = 81 miles
      - Trek to Duluth = 154 miles

You can choose to walk, jog, run, bike, snowshoe, or cross-country ski; whichever option fits your fancy on that particular day!!

All participants will receive a medal and a shirt, with additional swag items for the higher difficulty Treks. Swag items will be mailed out to participants within 2-3 weeks after registration has closed.

As this is a virtual challenge, you can choose any location you want to complete it.  
Any trails nearby that you like to snowshoe on? Use em. 
Already have a favorite cross-country skiing route? Perfect. 
Weather a little too intense and need to use a treadmill? Go for it!!

As long as you're staying safe and socially distanced, the world is your oyster.
